    Notes on 23.09.2019 session. A well attended, and rewarding session, 5 people were in attendance; PM/TW/TV/LH/AK - 6 pieces of improvisations were performed using system 50:50 plus warm exercises and small discursive discussions. Timings, 3 pieces with one minute silence in between of the following: 8 minutes duration, 4 minutes tacet, 4 minutes free play. Another three pieces were performed, using the reversal technique: 8 minutes duration > 1st 3 minutes tacet 5 minutes free play, 2nd piece 5 minutes tacet, 3 minutes free play (reversed), 3rd piece 3 minutes tacet 5 minutes free play.

    Mood in the room, very positive and up beat. all players appeared to appreciate the benefits system 5050 brings to a process known as `free improvisation in music.`

    This was rehearsal 6
    Plan are in place for session 7 to happen within 6 weeks of September 23rd
