Derrida og Coleman

Bloggen An und für sich postet på fredag link til et intervju Jacques Derrida gjorde med Ornette Coleman i 1997, kalt “The Other’s Language” (se også her, på Jazz Studies Online, også med link for pdf). Det er på langt nær Derridas beste tekst, men det gjør heller intet. Og jeg liker følgende sitat:

“I am not an ‘Ornette Coleman expert’, but if I translate what you are doing into a domain that I know better, that of written language, the unique event that is produced only one time is nevertheless repeated in its very structure. Thus there is a repetition, in the work, that is intrinsic to the initial creation – that which compromises or complicates the concept of improvisation. Repetition is already in improvisation: thus when people want to trap you between improvisation and the pre-written, they are wrong.”

Et av verkene som diskuteres er Colemans Skies of America (fra 1972). Her er avslutningstemaet, “Sunday in America”:
