Call For Papers: Sound Lines - Improvisation, Text and Media Conference

The ongoing emergence of new media presents both challenges and opportunities for  improvisers from around the world. ICASP – in conjunction with Coastal Jazz and the  University of British Columbia – invites proposals for presentations at Sound Lines, a  conference  on  improvisation,  text  and  media  to  take  place  June  24  and  25,  2010,  in Vancouver, British Columbia, alongside the TD Canada Trust Vancouver International  Jazz Festival.  Proposals are due by April 7th.

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.
