Nusica insights is a new project by nusica.org and curated by Muhssin Pizii which has as its main goals to suggest new contents by focusing on new perspectives on musical composition and improvisation.
Those contents will be avaible as videos of interviews of artists and composers from the Jazz, New Music, Electronic and Contemporary international scene in which they will discuss about their own compositions, some techniques that they developed or still are developing and about their artistic collaborations.
In addition there’ll be published some essays that will focus on some aspects of the 21th century music composition and improvisation by going deeply on some new techniques and by proposing new concepts based on this aestethic.
