Abstract

This intervention appears in Distributed Creativity: Collaboration and Improvisation in Contemporary Music, published by OUP. The edited volume explores the different ways in which collaboration and improvisation enable and constrain creative processes.

Thirteen chapters and twelve shorter Interventions offer a range of perspectives on distributed creativity in music,oncomposer/performer collaborations and on contemporary improvisation practices. The chapters provide substantial discussions of a variety of conceptual frameworks and particular projects, while the Interventions present more informal contributions from a variety of practitioners (performers, composers, improvisers), giving insights into the pleasures and perils of working creatively in collaborative and improvised ways.
