Students will be required to apply, explore and review these techniques daily to embody the techniques into their individual improvised musical language. Theoretical studies focus on media studies representation and simulation; authorship in improvisation; cross-cultural collaborations and nationalism; Glocalization and the improvisational diaspora.
