Tell us a little about your background...
I am an independent scholar and house-husband living in Pittsburgh. I write about the history of emergence as concept; about competing models of time and the ideological, aesthetic, social and political stakes of dominance and resistance; embodied and distributed cognition and the arts, particularly the architecture of Arakawa and Gins, and jazz performance; and about the agency of metaphor in trans-disciplinary inquiry. I also play jazz guitar, and have written numerous jazz compositions, and am beginning to perform again in the Pittsburgh area, a jazz town, rich and deep in history and talent.
With Jondi Keane of Griffith University, Brisbane AU, I co-directed the first completely digital global humanities conference-- AG3-Online: The Third International Arakawa and Gins: Architecture and Philosophy Conference -- which ran from March 12-26, 2010 with concluding celebrations at Barnard College April 30, and at
The Solomon Guggenheim Museum, May 1, where Martin gave the inaugural keynote.
See the conference website: http://ag3.griffith.edu.au
I recently published Part One of a long study called "Jazz and Emergence" in the journal _Inflexions_ 4, which looks at the science and philosophy in order to understand jazz performance as a "complex system": http://www.senselab.ca/inflexions/volume_4/n4_rosenberghtml.html
(Warning: its long--94 pp with 34 sound files)
I have two more essays in process, at this moment during the summer of 2012, and I expect "Jazz and Emergence" to become a book soon.
