  • try things out which might be quite complicated, but then persevere until they are sorted out, and
  • offer ideas towards a piece or process

Clip 2, A1:  coming up with an idea for Holeo.

Clip 3, A: at the end of Goat Music - already others in the group are laughing as they finish, but A continues and is confident and clear and understands what’s required of her.
