Yesterday was another productive day with Lise, most of the day was a planning day to make others days happen. I large part of the day was dedicated to discussing the future of this project. Lise has been struggling to grasp the scope, I think especially the amount of time for which this project will exist in an ambivalent state without many tangible answers. Currently, this project is an idea, an hypothesis about the kind of a social tool music can become. Soon, Lise and I will have the opportunity to test these ideas and learn how people use music improvisation to communicate complex social issues. For now, all of that will have to remain a question.
The highlight of our day was spent with Merula Swedish Choir. Lise taught the choir several different free improvisation frameworks, all of which stretched their comfort zones. It was moving to watch a group of people feel uncomfortable with their surroundings, and channel their insecurity through new and sudden music making. After rehearsal a group of us went across the street for a few drinks, where we talked and enjoyed.
