This is concert stems from the course called “Performance exploration and music creation in real time” held by Sergio Castrillón at Laponia Improvisations.

The course explored new ways to give a music performance but also developed an understanding of Music Heuristics, improvisation and the process of composing through performance.

The concert includes solo sets as well as group re-orchestrations of electroacoustic pieces by John Chowning.
