This paper summarizes the author’s thesis investigating intercultural creativity and cognition in networked musical improvisation. The research is situated amongst scholarly studies of tele-musical interaction, highlighting the technological agenda that drives this enquiry and the need for a deeper examination of the experiential qualities of networked improvisatory practice. The advantages of distributed cognition as a theoretical perspective are considered in relation to evaluation of a preliminary pilot study. Incidences of creative interaction reveal the cognitive strategies that musicians employ to navigate the dispersed non-visual, improvisatory-networked experience.
