Media Coverage of Research Matters Event

Project Director Ajay Heble was warmly received by a full house of enthusiastic listeners at Kitchener's Tannery Event Centre. Heble, who presented a talk, "Improvisation will be at the core of sustainable communities and unprecedented change," was joined by Donna Kotsopolous (Wilfrid Laurier), Andrew Pelling (Ottawa), and Amir Khajepour (Waterloo). In addition to the capacity crowd at the venue, a large audience followed the Research Matters event online, eager to hear about the night's topic, "Life in 2030." A very special thanks to ICASP supporters, members, and partners who took the time to attend the event, follow the live-stream, or keep up with the live-tweeting on the official ICASP twitter feed.

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.
