music and through an ongoing process of performance software development, experiment with methods of re- connecting electronic sound with its visual source. The use of network technology has allowed the group to develop this approach to aid a more cohesive relationship between the performers. By allowing the systems to interact with each other, the causal actions of an individual improviser can be used to influence the electronic output of another. This helps to reinforce the bond between the two and can emphasise performer interaction. Jünk Teller’s approach is experimental and their practical research into performer interaction is an ongoing process that allows the continuing development of cohesive relationships in improvisation. Jünk Teller is the network dependent collaboration of signal processing, free improvisers Tristan Clutterbuck (hand-made stringed instrument with electronics), Tina Krekals (saxophone with electronics) and Stewart Houston (clarinet with electronics). The group are current students and recent graduates from The University of Edinburgh’s Digital Composition and Performance postgraduate course. They practice acoustic and electronic network improvisation, perform regularly across the UK and have released three recordings in 2013. The members are also founders of the larger BOAR Collective and have recently been awarded a grant to curate an improvisation festival at Cafe Oto in February 2014. Examples of the groups work can be found at http://junkteller. bandcamp.com and http://boarcollective.tumblr.com.
