This chapter takes a particular case study, that of the live multimodal signed gestural language, Soundpainting, to reassess the issues of intuition, dissemination and authorship in a collaborative context. It defines what Soundpainting is and illustrates how a performer-composer uses their intuition in the creation of a new work. It seeks new forms of dissemination and performance practice. It then questions the notion of authorship within a work which is created through a collaborative process, in the moment, using intuition and dialogue.
