Newsletter: Improv Notes

Improv Notes was initially distributed in 2008 as a quarterly newsletter. From June 2011 until September 2014 the revamped Improv Notes was assembled, written, and distributed on a monthly basis by ICASP's Media and Public Relations Coordinator, Paul Watkins. From October 2014 until today the newsletter is written and compiled by graduate research assistant David Lee, and edited and assembled by Administrative Assistant Rachel Collins. The newsletter includes a wide range of news, artist profiles, calls for papers, multimedia, featured ICASP special projects, and artist quotes.

Call for Content

The newsletter is a chance to reach a wide community of individuals who are interested in the latest news related to improvisation research and performance. If you have news or events that you think should be distributed as part of our monthly newsletter, please send it to: icaspweb@uoguelph.ca.

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.
