Esa Onttonen's first doctoral concert “Lab" seeks to find out how improvisation turns into composition the time of the performance.

Instead of completely free improvisation, music is guided by an application developed by Onttonen that allows musicians to create, send and receive musical information in real time. The musicians of Labra, with a visiting guitarist Jarmo Saari, explore the poorly surveyed middle ground of improvised and composed music.
