Presentation: Improvisation As Spontaneous Creation
As a proponent of what he terms ‘composition by improvisation’, composer/pianist, Robert Irving III crystallizes the methodology of this concept in his musical show-and-tell with music professionals and one of his young improv students. Irving states, “What we call improvisation has long been the invisible foundation of jazz and classical composition. It is the intention behind, the recognition of, the archive of and the subsequent development of improvisational expression that elevates it to the higher status of creative compositional masterpiece.”
