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.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
