The Beatles & the Avant-Garde

The only book of its kind, The Beatles & The Avant-Garde tells the story of the Fab Four's more aesthetically challenging material. With his trademark blend of intellectual rigor with accessibility, Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicz explains the innovative thinking behind some of the band's most infamous projects (including 'Carnival of Light' and 'Revolution 9') and illustrates how those artistic productions reflect the lives of their creators. Beatles lore assumes that Yoko Ono's sway over John Lennon was solely responsible for the band's avant-garde experiments. The whole story, however, is much more interesting and complex. This book explores not only how and why Yoko influenced John, but also the many other avenues through which the Beatles found the avant-garde, channeling those influences to create innovative, world-changing music. In these pages, fans and scholars alike will find valuable insights and a new way of thinking about the Beatles' extraordinary accomplishments.

About the Author

Professional Beatles scholar Aaron Krerowicz graduated from Butler University in 2008 with a Bachelor's of Music in Theory and Composition, from Boston University in 2010 with a Master's of Music in Composition, and from the University of Hartford in 2012 with a Graduate Artist Diploma in Music Composition. While still a student, he won a research grant in November 2011 through the University of Hartford to study the Beatles, and has presented his findings through lectures and seminars at dozens of universities, libraries, and community centers throughout the United States. As a teacher and speaker, Aaron remains in high demand for his educational seminars and presentations, which often draw capacity crowds.

The complete list and descriptions can be found in the document 'Educational Presentations Repertoire' on his website: www.AaronKrerowicz.com.
