I’ve seen the “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture” quote variously attributed to Miles Davis, Elvis Costello, and Frank Zappa. Who said it? I’ve no idea, these people think its Elvis.
A course called ‘Dancing about Architecture’ has been announced, which is about music journalism, and features a lot of the best bloggers out there, such as Jim Carroll and Sinead Gleeson among others. It’s free, and seems in no short measure to be a reaction to Hot Press’s announcement of their own course in music journalism (which isn’t free at 900 euro!).
Details are here.
