Search and Reflect: the Changing Practice of Improvisation

Toop, David (2008) Search and Reflect: the Changing Practice of Improvisation. New Sound (32). pp. 119-129. ISSN 1821-3782

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Toop, David

This article analyses original ideals of free improvisation in the UK, adaptations of those ideals that occurred in the 1990s, and the author’s experience of leading improvisation workshops with students at the University of the Arts London. It links the author’s role as a participant in improvisation classes run by Spontaneous Music Ensemble founder John Stevens in 1971 to the continuing relevance of ideas pioneered by Stevens, in both pedagogical formats and the public practice of improvising.
