    There is an ommission to the score, that is the sharing by talking time. At some sessions the talk and sharing might be longer than the activity of the session, or less but substantial. P Morton uses the following quote that arose from another research project into free improvisation ( Centrifuge, developing an aesthetic) and provided by the artist Adam Fairhall `

    To develop a literacy that enables the verbal articulation and sharing of ideas.

    To develop the music; particular sensibilities or values may become more apparent through the combination of playing and discussion. This may help us negotiate improvisations with further sensitivity and awareness, even if a unified Centrifuge (replace Centrifuge with a word/prqctice of your choice) ‘aesthetic’ does not emerge (although this might happen too!).

    The `sharing by talking` comes with baggage, I receive waves of negativity on this approach. I choose not to comment on that at this time. To be continued

    Some extra thoughts: A bit messy this, the offer uses the term `music` which is a bit problematic as music comes with baggage, peer pressure> In improvised music, the canvas is wide so the phrase music maybe unhelpful. We could use the phrase `sound` oe event sound art but that is messy too, the soundscape is not binary music vs sound art. The strengths of the phrase `sound art` is that it could imply new relations arising from the actions of those present whilst music evokes pre-existing states and memories. However this is just a personal point of view, and should be taken as such.
