P&P Live! Ian Brennan — Muse Sick: A Music Manifesto in Fifty-Nine Notes - with Judith Heumann

Upcoming Event
Saturday, September 25, 2021 - 7:00pm

This event will stream online as a part of our P&P Live! Series

Grammy-winning music producer, Ian Brennan's seventh book, Muse Sick: a music manifesto in fifty-nine notes, acts as a primer on how mass production and commercialization have corrupted the arts. Broken down into a series of core points and actions plans, Muse Sick is a concise and affordable pocket primer follow-up to Brennan's two previous music missives, How Music Dies (or Lives): Field Recording and the Battle for Democracy in the arts and Silenced by Sound: The Music Meritocracy Myth.

In fifty-nine concise and clear points, Brennan reveals how corporate media has constricted local culture and individual creativity, leading to a lack of diversity within "diversity." Muse Sick's narrative portions are driven and made corporeal via the author's ongoing field-recording chronicles with widely disparate groups, such as the Sheltered Workshop Singers.

Ian Brennan is a Grammy-winning music producer and the author of four books. He has worked with the likes of John Waters, Merle Haggard, and Green Day, among others. His work has been featured on the front page of the New York Times and on an Emmy-winning 60 Minutes segment.

Judith (Judy) Heumann is a lifelong advocate for the rights of disabled people. She contracted polio in 1949 in Brooklyn, New York and began to use a wheelchair for her mobility. She was denied the right to attend school because she was considered a "fire hazard" at the age of five. Her parents played a strong role in fighting for her rights as a child, but Judy soon determined that she, working in collaboration with other disabled people, had to play an advocacy role due to continuous discrimination.
