Phil Morton (Liverpool:UK) developed this system during a ten year period. Phil Morton has been active in `free improvisation` as a player, workshop design and delivery, and whole day symposiums exploring the nature and practice of free improvisation over since 1998. he commends this project `to the house` to the genre, as a unique methodology that unpicks the complexity of the music, the sounds, our reactions through the simplicity of the method. A bold statement, it maybe a fallacy, or of substance, the research process will explore this and find out.
