Summary

Remixing European Jazz Culture examines a jazz culture that emerged in the 1990s in cosmopolitan cities like Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Berlin, London, and Oslo—energized by the introduction of studio technologies into the live performance space, which has since developed into internationally-recognized, eclectic, hybrid jazz styles. This book explores these oft-overlooked musicians and their forms that have nonetheless expanded the plane of jazz’s continued prosperity, popularity, and revitalization in the 21st century—one where remix is no longer the sole domain of studio producers.

Seeking to update the orthodoxies of the field of jazz studies, Remixing European Jazz Culture

  • incorporates electronic and digital performance, recording, and distribution practices that have transformed the culture since the 1980s;
  • provides a more diverse and multifaceted cultural representation of European jazz and the contributions of a variety of performers; and
  • offers an encompassing picture of the depth of jazz practice that has erupted through Northern Europe since 1989.

With an expansion of international networks and a disintegration of artistic boundaries, the collaborative, performative, and real-time improvisational process of remixing has stimulated a merging of the music’s past and present within European jazz culture.
