Study Day with Roberto Dani

What do we know in a score? The search fro new possibilities between notation and improvisation.

The purpose of this study day is to discuss and enquire into new ways in which music performers can relate to the already known – specifically, musical works and notation. Percussionist Roberto Dani will present his method of working with improvisation utilising models drawn not only from musical structures, but also from observations in everyday life and in human interactions, thus mobilising the relationship between notation, improvisation and extemporisation.

This will be linked to a reflection on a possible new role of notated scores: can we extract from them improvisational models that differ from instructions linked to a solely musical code?

This Study Day will include an open improvisation workshop and a concert.
