Several buzzwords seem to permeate all sectors and disciplines: creativity, innovation, and interdisciplinarity. Despite their ubiquity and inherent theoretical relatedness, they remain disjointed concepts in practice. Bridging theory to practice becomes relevant as emerging intelligent
systems necessitate more human-like qualities. While computers can store information at unprecedented levels of speed and accuracy, they lack our ability to integrate stored with new, incoming information to adapt in pursuit of a goal. I believe that to create more human-like intelligent systems,
we must refocus our attention to understanding how complex webs of information such as audiovisual input, language, and emotion processing cohere into a whole. Creativity is a mental phenomenon that precisely engages multiple cognitive processes to generate novel solutions to problems. My
approach is two-fold: break down the artistic, spontaneous creative process in real time, and in doing so, introduce a novel educational and entertaining experience to the general public. In this paper I argue that to study creativity effectively, and communicate empirical questions and research
productively, a revision of experimental methods, data acquisition, and presentation format must be both uncontrolled and interdisciplinary. I discuss novel results from live musical improvisation within theatre to dissect spontaneous adaptability.
