Dynamic Form in Clinical Improvisation
Journal/Book: Journal of British Music Therapy. 1990; 4: 5- 1 0.
Abstract: Draws from the literature on non-verbal communication, especially between mothers and infants, in order to amplify the non-verbal communication that happens in clinical Improvisation, between therapist and client. The concept of 'Dynamic Form' is set out: a concept that provides a synthesis for the idea that clinical Improvisation is not only to do with playing music, but is also to do with psychological forms of feeling. In clinical improvisations, these forms of feeling are embodied through musical sounds that arise in a relationship between therapist and client.
