Improvisation is a journey through and into an imaginative space which you fill with your ideas.
Inside this space you will be moving and you will be moved,
balancing between different forces and melting into each other.
"Space of Improvisation" is a set of cards I developed as an outcome of my research on conceptual metaphors that musicians can use to find new ways of improvising together or at least to raise more awarness on ways they use sounds to interact. The cards use insights from cognitive linguistics into how we perceive of the world and our actions in metaphoric ways. You will find metaphoric instructions on which kind of sounds to play, on how to behave towards other players and more compound metaphorical instructions on how a improvised piece can be structured.
