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.

...the innovative working models of improvisation developed by creative practitioners have helped to promote a dynamic exchange of cultural forms, and to encourage new, socially responsive forms of community building across national, cultural, and artistic boundaries.
