On improvising qualities of conversations

"How does improvisation (musical, physical, conversational) underpin the development of artistry in musicians as performers and teachers? Artistry here is taken to mean what makes performance come alive- what enables performers to leave behind rehearsed skills and enter the realm of the unintended. Artistry undoubtedly demands technical facility, communicative skill and musical understanding; it however also requires improvisation that leads to unforeseen outcomes."

Voodling around improvisations in sensuous knowledge, Sam Renseiw investigated the entrance into realm(s) of the unintended. View the musical, unforeseen, mashed-up outcome by clicking here or on the links above. (patafilm # 633, 02'02'', 10.6MB, Quicktime/mov - other versions at

he sam,

great to see and hear this new reality emerging out of the real original reality! Was it real or all a play? I saw also the other one and watched it with my kids on the couch. The middle one was inspired to follow your track. The younger one wanted to swim! very nice. kind regards

So interesting to stay in the playful mode throughout, capturing the unforeseen. It now brings back the whole experience in different dimensions to me - seems important to shift that memory which had also started to lodge inside me - to keep reinventing what the experience was and is!
