Adopting the logic of a seismograph, improvisation can be understood as a methodology for gaining a deeper understanding of the manifold layers shaping communication and creativity. Improvisation is not only a practice for performative contexts but a method through which underlying assumptions, artistic attitudes and cultural strata can surface uninhibitedly. Difference is experienced in and through action.

Different ways of working, due to disciplinary backgrounds, cultural backgrounds or otherwise, can playfully co-operate through the artistic practice of improvisation. Cultural artefacts – sounds, words, images, bodies – migrate through the network and show how they might transform at its different nodes. Effects and affects.

These improvised encounters will also involve various mediating technologies: cameras, screens, microphones, loudspeakers, as well as the jitter and glitches of capricious connective streams travelling through the internet. Being here and there at the same time, reacting to each other within the network and reminding ourselves: “In improvisation, there are no mistakes” (Miles Davis). Let’s play!
