I had a free night on 19 February in Athens. My friend and colleague Nicoleta Chatzopoulou set up a lecture at the The Contemporary Music Research Center that founded in 1979 (and officially established in 1986) by Iannis Xenakis. The center revolves around artists and scientists exploring the boundaries between music, art, science and aesthetics.

We wove our way into lively discussions about composer/performer roles in the current European music life and got into the nitty gritty of composing for improvisers. Subjects that I’ve been pondering for over 30 years that are still ripe!
