In this article I will present my artistic research project entitled `Interactive systems in improvisation and composition' and discuss certain aspects of the project's development during the course of my work on it. I will briefly explain the theory that forms the framework for the research and discuss three selected projects that are all a part of my PhD studies. I will also touch upon the widely discussed issue of choosing a method for artistic research. The conclusion drawn from my experience is that an artistic research project is similar to the very nature of artistic practice; one needs to follow the paths opened up by the work. Finally, I comment on the potential validity of artistic research as a discipline.
