festival for improvised music
22.07 – 28.07.2013

daily lectures will be held at 14:00 afternoons wherein its topics are all related to improvised music. the lecture will be held at the NUR cafe @ M89 (mariannenstr. 89). for the current lecture programme please have a look at the festival blog as the lectures will be announced one day before they happen.

daily experiments can be visited in Nur cafe @ M89. small combinations of different encounters will follow diversified ideas of improvised music. the experiments can be understood as a kind of kitchen where musicians will be creating, discussing and trying out various kinds of musical communication. as these experiments are not planned at all (remember this is a symposium for improvised music!) the programme for all these encounters will be published one day in advance in the festival blog as the main interest in these meetings is to keep it all fresh and new …

daily concerts will happen on the attic of the building between 20:00 and 22:00. the idea of these concerts is to have all musicians playing in one single ensemble at the same time. there will be no structural compositions, no planning neither concerning the sound or the form of what ever happens. all pieces will sound as they are expressed by all cultural, musical and improvisational identity and skill of each of the participating artists. as the musicians will be present at different dates during this festival week a daily lineUp can be obtained (guess where ?) at the festival blog . electroacoustic sound projection will be realised by an 8-12 loudspeakers system, technically provided by klangkunstprojekte and the studio for electroacoustic music @ academy of music in weimar. there will be an entrance fee for the concerts of 5€/3€.

about the symposium:
this symposium improv.2013 is happening for the second time and extending its field of activity by lectures related to improvised music and further strategies. 

the aim of the project is to support the international network of musicians, soundartists and improvisers, to provide a space for different encounters of improvisation diciplines and to bring forward acoustic and electroacoustic improvisation. 

the festival/symposium will happen for a whole week from 22.07 to 28.07.2013. every festivalday will start with a lecture and discussion of different topics related to improvised music. during the afternoon small ensembles will meet to play and experiment. in the evenings there will be improvisation Concerts between 20:00-22:00 with all musicians being on stage.

this year the event is supported by the culturefond of the city of leipzig and by deutscher musikrat for a special concert (konzert des deutschen musikrates) related to time and improvisationStrategies.
