Vortex discussion 30 – Improvisation as a way to life (with special guest Michael Rüsenberg)

Oliver Weindling, Director at the Vortex, leads an informal discussion on Zoom about improvisation beyond jazz. Open to all – listen or get involved.

Improvisation is no just relevant to jazz! But it is equally a way to recognise a way of life and living. “We can’t not improvise.” (Georg Bertram) It has all too often been dismissed outside jazz, but certainly has been an important means of survival during the pandemic and its lockdowns?

We are delighted that Michael Rüsenberg, leading music journalist and part-time philospher/psychologist/anthropologist from Cologne, is a special guest this week, as he prepares to co-write a book on this subject. (
