Session design and content types.
Here are some examples of the different approaches Phil Morton takes to workshop content exploring the nature and practice of this music
- Snap out of it programme: exercises aimed at `unlearning mechanical ways of making music` (Maggie Nicols) influences by John Steven's book search and reflect.
- Click - Jigsaw programmes, heuristic sessions (influenced by Eddie Prevost) were the artists perform, then reflect and share their thinking about the experience.
- Soundwalks and sonic gaze: personal development through the act of listening, as part of a preparatory methodology for the sound artist or artist
- System 5050 - exploring the decision-making, the aesthetics options in the pursuit of free improvisation in music
The improvisers' networks website has a section on workshop pieces exploring the nature and practice of free improvisation in music: here is the URL LINK
