Exploring and expanding improvisatory knowledge in musical practice
Summary, in English
Our aims were to
•rethink improvisation in our individual practices and as a collective, professional phenomenon through playing and discussions of experiences,
•explore how individual musical language(s) and creative strategies relate to socio-historical and musical performance structures,
•use innovative performance settings that challenge conventional notions of the musical ‘work’ and conceptions of ‘free’ improvisation.
Results suggest that emotionally difficult and artistically dangerous situations, presenting risks of conflict and failure, can be turned into tools for musical expansion and increased artistic agency when endured and collectively articulated.
