Research Dimensions: The research undertaken for this performance was based around two strands.1) composing the music that would be used as a basis for improvisation and 2) documenting and reflecting on the process of creative collaboration. This research informs my exploration of improvisation within artistic domains (specifically musical improvisation. This knowledge is then applied to understanding improvisation within social contexts.
