»performances of a gendered and sexed self are partly, though certainly not entirely, performances of and through the body [...].For musical performance, too, is partly (but not entirely) the culturally intelligible performance of bodies. Much musical ›composition‹ can be described as the translation of ideas so they can be performed through bodies.«
