The Improvising Across Borders Conference will take place on July 17-19, 2014, throughout downtown Prague.

Keynote speakers: George Lewis, Pauline Oliveros, and Dana Reason.

I will present a paper on the role of technology in the field of musical improvisation. Central question is if humans are indispensable for improvisation. I will argue that, although human input might always be present in any improvisation, it can be a minor actant in certain occasions; sometimes, technology is the most important (f)actor in an improv event.
