Networked improvisational musical environments : learning through online collaborative music making
This chapter explores the potential for using computers, linked via a network, as vehicles for collaborative musical improvisation. The term 'networked improvisation' suggests a 'contemporary musicianship', which embraces the computer as instrument, the network as ensemble and cyberspace as venue. Networked improvisation provides a multitude of learning opportunities, which the authors will discuss. Drawing on a selection of school- and community-based case studies, they will focus on issues, approaches and strategies for educators using networked musical environments. The chapter will also illustrate the potential of such environments to provide collaborative and supportive learning spaces, where both action and reflection can take place.
