The purpose of this paper is to present an embodied view on human/machine co‐creation in general, and musical improvisation in particular.
Questions and propositions are formed by examining personal work in intelligent, interactive system design.
Proper consideration of gestural representation and intentionality leads to enhanced potential for collective expression in human/machine interaction.
This approach extends ideas of conversation theory to improvisational contexts based on spontaneous, collective expression.
