About the Seminar/Lecture
Dr. Per Anders Nilsson will present concepts and ideas from his current activities as an experimental musician and artistic researcher. In essence, his interests lie in exploring and developing concepts and systems for freer forms of improvisation. A basic aesthetical tenet is to regard improvisation as playing a game, and the role of the composer, or rather the designer, is to create the conditions for playing, like the playing field and the rules in a game. You will also see examples from some software employed, as well as examples on video from previous performances.
