Marcelle Kosman is an MA student in the University of Guelph's School of English and Theatre Studies. Her current research explores the disappearing body and apocalyptic anxieties in Jonathan Goldstein's CBC Radio programme WireTap- a major departure from her ongoing interest in post-modernist Canadian poetry. Marcelle moved to Guelph with her partner Trevor and their feline companions, Beowulf and Cozette, after a seven-year stint in Montreal. Her ambition is to one day host her own CBC Radio programme, preferably on Radio 3.

Improvisation is, simply put, being and living this very moment. No one can hide in music, and improvising in music is to be truly in this very moment and being completely yourself, with all your qualities and faults. It is probably the most honest state for a human being to be in.

– John McLaughlin in an interview with Daniel Fischlin.
