Defining Improv with Han-earl Park

Seemingly starting from zero when it comes to understanding improvised music, this un-bylined Improvised Music Company Q+A with British-Korean guitarist Han-earl Park tries to find explanations that aren’t forthcoming. Speaking before a Dublin performance with the trio Eris136199 that also includes fellow guitarist Nick Didkovsky and baritone saxophonist Catherine Sikora, Park’s wide-ranging answers attempt to describe the transformative qualities of group improvisation and outline conditions for an ideal free-music gig. He become a little more obscure when he reveals that right now his main musical inspirations come from contemporary politics, genre fiction and film and even the mechanical production of recorded pop music.
