Modul I
Instant Composition / Improvisation in Performance
14th January - 12th April 2019

Instant Composition in Performance is nothing less than the creation of a composition right in the actual moment. The players are equally material inventors, composers and performers. The aim of this module is to work on the fundamentals for fulfilling these three important aspects in the teaching situation and to consolidate them under the circumstances of the weekly public showings.
