Summary
Stephen Nachmanovitch, Ph.D. (violinist, author, computer artist, and educator; owner of Free Play Productions, Charlottesville, Virginia ) began by playing an improvisational piece with Loren Ludwig (Graduate Student, McIntire School of Music, University of Virginia) who played the viola da gamba. Dr. Nachmanovitch described the similarities between medicine (physician patient interaction)/science and art and the process of creativity and improvisation which involves intense listening, openness, presence and communication.
