Experiment

New Music Jam

By now, many people have heard a jazz group improvise on the music of J.S. Bach.  But has anyone heard an improvisation on the music of a well-known living composer?  As far as we know, this has never been attempted before.  So we hope you will join us either as a participant or as an audience member to explore this bold new territory at our NEW MUSIC JAM!
 
Hosted by Brendan Faegre and the Edge Ensemble, the full evening consists of a laboratory for participants to democratically discuss and improvise based on a piece of contemporary music.
 
This second edition of New Music Jam consists of group improvisations based on Steve Reich's "Piano Phase".
After the laboratory (and meal) you will all  improvise for a small audience.
 
The workshop starts at 18.15hrs and is open to all interested musicians (intermediate level and up).
The evening finishes with prepared improvisations by the Edge Ensemble based on Hans Abrahamsen's "Schnee".
 
It's possible to join a really nice and healthy meal for €8,50 (drinks not included and musicians will pay €4,50) after the workshop and before the concert.
 
Please let us know if you want to join the workshop by sending a mail to schreiner@nutshuis.nl
