I thought I would update everyone regarding the research I am currently doing in relation to Frank Zappa. Believe it or not, I am currently preparing for two conferences and an academic journal. Regarding the later, ‘Contempory Theatre Review’ have expressed an interest to publish my work on Zappa and Copyright – in particular the Zappa Family Trust stance on this. I have a deadline of Dec 1st, and any info anyone can provide about the legalities of the Zappa Family Trust stance would be most welcome. The two conferences I mention are in Germany and Cardiff. The first is an investigation into Frank Zappa and Sex which I am working on with my colleague Prof Richard Hand, and the second is more concerned with the way Zappa blurred the boundaries between performance, composition and production. Again any thoughts or comments much appreciated. I will post more details of progress over the next few weeks.
