Review – Free Play

Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art, Stephen Nachmanovich. Tarcher/Putnam, 1990.
When everything happens in “real time”, we have improvisation, whether it’s music or drama (or software!). Nachmanovitch explores the interplay of freedom and rules, of work and play, of practice and performance. Using art, music, and more, he leads us to explore creativity, in a touching and thought-provoking way. (Reviewed July, ’06)
