Hannan, MF 2006, 'Interrogating comprovisation as practice-led research' paper presented to Speculation and innovation : applying practice led research in the creative industries, Queensland University of Technology. Brisbane, Qld., 5 April.


In this paper the author describes his practice of comprovisation, the making of new compositions from recordings of improvised material, and interrogates its validity within the debate about creative practice as research. Although the practice has random and intuitive elements he concludes that it is likely to produce new knowledge and is grounded in the tacit knowledge of composition technique.
