Joel Gorrie

about the author

Joel Gorrie is a musician, educator, and improviser, most often in contexts related to the cello. He is currently musically and sonically exploring ideas of tension and release, the use and constraint of various tools, repetition and ostinato, and patterns and their deviations. His research interests include autism and socio-sensory experience, musical pedagogy as a means of social change, as well as how improvisation can utilise physical and conceptual constraints to channel creative focus in neuro-diverse environments.
