This portfolio presents seven projects that use improvisation as source material for subsequent electronic music. Fixed media pieces including music for film, contemporary dance as well as two albums are included. Furthermore, recordings of live performance works where improvisation was controlled via compositions, loop- based material, custom-made software tools and hardware devices are presented in the folio. The commentary explains the methods used in the projects and shows them in a wider context of other artists’ work. It describes the creative usage of technology in the pieces presented in the folio. Also, the examination of visual elements as a guide for improvisation is discussed in relation to each project.
