White noise: jazz and Australian modernisation

Bruce Johnson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


My argument is that jazz was the pre-eminent musical signature of Australian modernisation. I have documented aspects of that argument elsewhere, primarily under the headings of aesthetics, cultural politics and technology, (1) but I wish to enlarge the connections very considerably to embrace considerations of phenomenology and epistemology: how we experience and know the world.
