Useful Music

More than three years after I uploaded an old conference paper and a couple of sidebars from my graduate school music history research, I’ve finally completed Useful Music. Completed, both in the sense that work is finished and in the sense that it’s closed; at one point I thought I might do something with it, but not now. It’s a memorial to the plans I had before I ran, screaming, from academe. Looking back on it, I’m surprised at the clunky writing and lack of insight; apparently I’ve come a long way in a decade.
