This paper began life as a conference presentation interweaving live music and spoken word. In what follows, we retain our original format of alternating (individually authored) discourse with video documentation of the performances given by Fletcher and me (on saxophone and piano, respectively). This is to evoke for the reader a sense of the liveness of the original event and, importantly, to retain the balance of spoken word to music-making that we deliberately factored into our presentation. In this respect, the paper should be thought of as a performance of artistic research in music, where the knowledge pertaining to that research inhabits and is expressed by both the writing and the music-making in equal measure.
