Today I’m talking to French musician, improviser and composer, Marion Ruault. While she has studied jazz, classical and many forms of world music and performed in various collaborations around Europe, during her two years living in Berlin, Marion focused on expanding her improvisational practices.
We spoke about the freedom and responsibility that comes with playing improvised music about the need to find a balance between one’s impulses on what’s happening in the group. Listening is an important part of this practice.
We also spoke about her first solo performance and the challenge of making mistakes in public, and how making mistakes can be the best way forward for one’s development as an artist.
