"Gathering major figures across several disciplines, Negotiated Moments is a comprehensive, field-defining, and state-of-the-art collection that maps out new approaches to studying improvisation. By covering a diverse set of topics, the contributors highlight how improvisation studies intersects with a range of new theoretical paradigms such as affect theory, embodiment theory, cognitive analysis, and memory studies. This ambitious book will reach audiences in a number of fields, both inside and outside of music." — Will Straw, coeditor of The Cambridge Companion to Pop and Rock
"Negotiated Moments is a timely and exciting multidisciplinary collection that is not only essential reading for critical improvisation studies specialists, but is valuable for scholars and students in ethnomusicology, performance studies, sound and popular music studies, and media studies. I know of no other place to turn in the existing literature on improvisation to find the range of perspectives offered here." — Tara Rodgers, author of Pink Noises: Women on Electronic Music and Sound
