Rather than describing his art in conventional categories, this essay stresses the productive tensions created by his transgression of genre and media boundaries. Through a contrastive reading of his records Small Talk at 125th and Lenox (1970) and Reflections (1981), it traces the development of his aesthetics from a poetic toward a musical emphasis but shows that both of these influences are present throughout his work. The aesthetics Scott-Heron developed, the essay argues, is more thoroughly intermedial than previous accounts suggest. Rather than combining various media into an organic whole, his intermedial aesthetics foregrounds the conflictive yet creative process of negotiating their influences.</dcterms:abstract> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/47232"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-10-15T12:53:07Z</dcterms:available> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Müller, Timo</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2019-10-15T12:53:07Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>Poetry to Music : Gil Scott-Heron's Intermedial Performance Aesthetics</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/38"/> <dcterms:issued>2019-09-23</dcterms:issued> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
