Listen in as clarinetist and improviser Angel Bat Dawid presents some recent musical pieces and shares her thoughts about the practice of improvisation.

This In Progress was filmed at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago on January 21, 2020, and was moderated by Tara Aisha Willis, Associate Curator.
