Workshop exercises and design - free improvisation in performance

Workshop exercises exploring the nature and practice of free improvisation in music and performance. The aim is to create a resource, an archive or `a list` of workshop exercises or session designs employed by `free improvisers` in the workshop situation.  To share your own work or session designs use the form displayed or send them to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Criteria - the focus here is on exercises that explore free improvisation as the entity of the action and not to explore concepts or other practices using free improvisation as the methodology, for example, the following may be excluded from this section, Butch Morris's Conduction, John Zorns Cobra, graphic scores, pieces of work. Solution: if there is a distinction to be made these activities eg `graphic scores` they may have their own section in the website or be better served already at another website, or following a debate and other points of view are shared this policy or criteria may be dropped.

Music - may dominate this presentation but other `practices` are welcome and to be explored e.g. Dance
