Edited by Karolina Doughty, Michelle Duffy and Theresa Harada
Chapter 17: Musical improvisation as therapeutic practice: an interlude
This piece serves as an interlude – a point of departure and an opportunity to reflect on the practice of sound making. Based on a short film which was screened at the Geography, Space, Music Conference at Durham University in 2018, the writing is organised around five quotations from Erin Manning’s (2016) The Minor Gesture which serve as thematic provocations for the insights offered. The five themes taken up by the author are: Affirmation, Experimentation, Vibration, Elasticity and Gesture.
