Made with the guitar


The project, `free improvisation made with` project, launched in January 2019, sets out to present examples of `free improvisation in performance` filtered by key words (usually instruments) or concepts.

Examples will be `made with the voice` - `made with the trumpet` - made with the double bass` - `made with objects`.

This section features the guitar, we suggest three categories to explore
Extended techniques, acoustic
Extended sound palette: gadgetry
Extended techniques, electric - like acoustic but the sound is amplified not processed.

The examples, and the support material will feature the entity in the description as a soloist, in a duo, that is highly featured and if in a ensemble context to be in the foreground of the audio presentation. To be featured.

The section grow and also feature other resources and support documentation, e.g. articles, reading materials, books, Phd documents etc.

This project needs support, and individuals to do the work, individuals to do the evaluation of what is included and what is not.
