DIMC Conference Discussion 2011
The discussion touched upon these and more themes:
Ulrike: Everybody should do this. We don't learn to feel.
Sylvia: I always focus on myself and silence before I play
Juan: Intuitive music is not alien ('Fremdkörper').
Sylvia: The 'Wunderkind' (child prodigy) attitude is lessening all the time
Regine: I worked with some children - I proposed them to draw freely, but they wanted a theme. I then said "Paint an animal" and one said "Nooo! I want a flower!"
Juan: What leads us to make coherent decisions?
Paul: Rules are coming when you play, mostly unconscious. You need spirit and to follow your intention
Regine: What makes improvisation without previous agreements function?
Norbert: because of ping-pong [call and response; dialogical aspect]
Sylvia: because of atmosphere
