About this item

Bruford, a drummer and teacher who writes and lectures on creativity in popular music performance, demonstrates how drummers engage in creativity in performance and how the creativity is socially and psychologically constructed, covert, and downplayed. He draws on creativity studies and cultural psychology to examine aspects of creativity and meaning in drummer performance, contending that performers hope to convey intentions by the expression of experience and that this expression may be evaluated by others as significant and creative. He shows how drummers experience creativity through significant mediated action in context, drawing on an action-theoretical thematic analysis of the "in the moment" collaborative creativity of a group of expert Western kit drummers in popular music performance. He discusses four dimensions of creativity--selection, differentiation, communication, and assessment--and describes how drummers conceptualize, achieve, and interpret creativity in performance; how they construct and communicate difference; and how they assess the significance of that difference.
