A chair and professor of music, William Cheng works at the intersections of cultural histories, disability studies, media theories, care ethics, and queerness. His project—equal parts memoir, live-recorded album, and visual novel digital game—illustrates how culturally hybridized pedagogies and practices of Western classical improvisation (a so-called lost art) may empower minoritized musicians to animate a spectrum of anti-racist, anti-assimilationist, and anti-capitalist agendas in the 21st century.
