In this presentation, Roger Mills discusses his new book Tele-Improvisation: Intercultural Interaction in the Online Global Music Jam Session. He presents case study research of how geographically dispersed musicians and sonic artists interact tele-improvisation, and the approaches and strategies they develop to perform across global cultures and time-zones. The presentation includes audio-visual recordings of remote online improvisations as well a multimodal analysis of music, sound, gestures, and performers verbalised reflections. The book considers the unique musical and phenomenological characteristics of telematic music making, and the ways in which performers negotiate the unknown in first online encounters without the gestural cues and communicative modes of collocated presence.

Dr. Roger Mills is a musician, sound artist and writer whose practice and research focuses on networked music performance, improvisation, music composition and radio. He has also worked as a composer and sound designer for both stage and screen. Roger’s credits include sound design for the multiscreen cinema film Hindsight (Ignition Films, UK), the score for BAFTA award winning dance theatre performance At Swim Two Boys (Earthfall, UK), and a Golden Eye Award for his multi-stream radio performance Idea of South (AU). He is the musical director of the internationally acclaimed Ethernet Orchestra, a networked music ensemble exploring new approaches to intercultural telematic improvisation. The ensemble informs Roger’s research at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) where he researches cross-cultural interaction in networked and digitally mediated environments.
