This artist's statement and excerpts from the performance script present an autobiographical reading of the music and autobiography of the trumpet player Miles Davis. The performance considers questions about dialogic performance, ethics, location, pedagogy, and the role of the student as listener. The responses to this performance consider the ethical implications of the performance, the generative possibilities of Davis's stories and music, and the pedagogical value of the stories about and music of Davis.
