About this blog

This is a blog where I keep notes about my activities as a musician and a researcher at Malmö Academy of Music, Lund University. Until October 2008 these notes relate to my work on my PhD thesis Improvisation, Computers and Interaction but has since then become more general. Published (and unpublished) papers, essays and articles may be found in the documents section.
