A SECOND LAYER OF IMPROVISATION

During music improvisation, musicians express themselves through live music. Within this process, changes in the expressivity of musicians are represented on different musical dimensions of high and low intensity. This dynamic process can also have influence on musicians emotional arousal that can be at times appreciated on their body gestures.

EMjam can be used during traditional music improvisation, and by monitoring individual changes in emotional arousal, it generates a digital second layer of improvisation. A second layer that is not dependant on traditional musical instruments and that can only be generated by the interaction between musicians. The generated sound can be used as inspiration to start the improvisation.
