Due to high demand, Michael Murray is finally making the lecture notes from his highly-regarded "Experimental" lecture available to those who were unable to attend. A small amount of them have been printed and they are now available worldwide.
Experimental by Michael Murray is a 42-page book accompanied by several additional props that help facilitate some of the ideas. Michael stresses that the name of the text is also an appropriate description for the contents inside, which are wildly creative and experimental in nature. There is a good portion of content being shared for the first time, as well as some ideas that are still in the development phase and ripe for further refinement.
