This is a quick way of getting some material ready to play with. Ask the group to get in pairs and have a two-minute conversation about anything that comes up. After two minutes, have each person work alone for fifteen minutes on a movement or sound score based on the conversation. Then have the pairs get back together and show their work as pairs. It’s great to see the natural relationships in the material without any planning between the pairs, but you can also give them more time to set something as duets or develop into fuller works and then show. This work reminds us how content for a complex work can come from anywhere, even a simple conversation.
