Uncharted: Creativity and the Expert Drummer is a study of creativity in the context of expert popular music instrumental
performance. What do expert drummers do? Why do they do it? Is there anything creative about it? If so, how might that creativity
inform their practice and that of others in related artistic spheres? Applying ideas from cultural psychology to findings
from research into the creative behaviors of a specific subset of popular music instrumentalists, Bill Bruford demonstrates
the ways in which expert drummers experience creativity in music performance and offers fresh insights into in- the- moment
interactional processes in music. An expert practitioner himself, Dr. Bruford draws on the perceptions of a cohort of internationally
renowned, peak- career professionals and his own experience to introduce and guide the reader through the many dimensions
of creativity in drummer performance.
