FREE PLAY STEPHEN NACHMANOVITCH PDF

The search for the muse within us continues. Since the time of Euripides in the 5th Century BC, poets, philosophers, scientists, writers and psychologists have been trying to explain creativity; where it is born; what forms it takes, and, most important, how it might be nourished. Also seeking to explain and plumb the creativity process in recent years have been gaggles of motivational gurus. They have tended to view innovation and invention as everything from a transcendental mystical experience to a sort of simplistic series of mental exercises.

It runs deeper than our activities involving music and art. It is the essence of our being, something we were born with then strive to recapture.

Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art

I strongly believe that improvisation benefits practice. To me, improvising is an essential musical skill, one possessed by musical greats Hussain, Bach, Shankar, Beethoven, Duke, Mozart, etc. Remember when you drew letters over and over as a young child, taking great care or not with the shapes?
