Posted in blog, Experimental Music, free improvisation, gigs, live music, news with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2013 by electronicmusik

Co-produced with Sound and Music and supported by Arts Council England, Mopomoso’s first ever UK tour will take place between 23rd and 30th of April 2013.

Each night of the tour will be unique as local musicians from each city join the line-up.
With a firm focus on free improvisation, musical references could range from jazz, rock,
folk, classical, electronic, world and computer-generated music, representing the broad
brush stroke spirit of inclusion embodied in the Mopomoso aesthetic.

Not to be missed, a superb array of the UK’s top improvisors, I’ll be at the Sheffield one for sure !
