The essays in this volume interrogate the aesthetic, cultural, artistic, and pedagogical aspects of musical improvisation. Improvisation is also a form of research, and as such, an instrument of knowledge, but how does this research broaden the horizon of improvisation? What form of research is appropriate to and derived from improvisation, and what qualities does improvisation offer artistic research? This bilingual book provides a fascinating portal into contemporary scholarship on music and performance.

Reinhard Gagel, improviser and ensemble-leader, teaches at University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna and leads the Department for Theory and Research at exploratorium berlin.

Matthias Schwabe, improvisational musician, composer and musical pedagogue, is the founder and director of exploratorium berlin. He teaches at the Social-Pedagogical Institute Berlin and at the Berlin University of the Arts.
