Comprovisation

Comprovisation is an audio form of collage.  A collage can be presented in a way that expresses the creative process as an element of the finished product.  Comprovisation is a polished form of the creative process combining the real-time spontaneity of improvisation with the  accuracy of a second draft.  In the audio form the composer might combine live recordings with older found sounds to create an entirely new piece.  The composer allows the listener to hear the entire creative process in real-time.

“Puddle Jumper” is an edited live performance I played with TAL at Rodan in Chicago. 

“Run” is a studio recording that includes first takes of improvised material by the saxophonist/composer Anthony Bruno.  Elements from a live improvisation of the piece were later included in this recording.
