Improvisation Technology

"Aesthetic and Performance of Electronic Music" is one of the my favorite classes. Today's topic was "improvisation technology" of William Forsythe.

We watched the CD-ROM which Forsythe made in order to enable his dancers to improvise themselves. Actually I saw it last year in Japan and I was really impressed with it. Forsythe provided a technical knowledge and philosophy that considering choreography as geographical drawing. Although it was 10 years ago that he made CD-ROM, it still has impact on choreography.
