What “musicking” means

The musical West and the quest for an “ethnophilosophical” paradigm

Giancarlo Siciliano
Starting from the concept of “musicking” (or “musicing”, in French “musiquer”), of which he discusses the relevance in the ethnomusicological literature, Giancarlo Siciliano offers the reader lines of enquiry for a work program between ethnomusicology, Cultural Studies and philosophy (an “ethnophilosophical” paradigm, a term borrowed to anthropologist Jean-Loup Amselle), in order to construct a holistic understanding of Jazz, and more broadly musical practice, as well as its importance for Western music and thought.
