Chris Cutler is a British performer, author, and the founder/CEO of the independent label and distribution network ReR Megacorp that specialises in experimental music. He became well-known as a drummer of the 1970s experimental group Henry Cow. As a researcher, he was involved with The International Association for the Study of Popular Music from its inception in the early ’80s and in his theoretical/critical book File Under Popular he proposed that ‘musicians themselves develop a theory of music and culture derived from their own practice’, an idea now resurgent in the concept of Practice as Research.
Chris will perform an improvisation set with Yumi Hara and Guy Harries, followed by a conversation regarding his ongoing podcast series. Probes http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag combines research, theory, presentation and curation – a practical model of the value and possible mode of presentation for research output by practitioners.
