Discussion: Scott Thomson in Conversation

Scott Thomson in Conversation

Improviser in Residence Scott Thomson will lead us in a discussion of Chapter 2, "Participatory and Presentational Performance," from the book Music as Social Life: The Politics of Participation by Thomas Turino. We will use it to consider the live performance of creative improvised music in general and Thomson's cartographic compositions in particular.

We’ll all be more innovative if we participate in collaborative webs and share more openly. Creativity is always a collaboration and it’s always a form of improvisation, written large in the social world.
