A group of thirteen WA-based improvisers from different backgrounds collectively explore the many possibilities of improvisation: as a device within composed music, as an extension of social interaction, as a means to explore the possibilities and ideas held within a space, as a way of discovering and sharing new ideas together, and as an approach towards creating the music unique to the combination of the identities of each participating performer. Across an hour, they will improvise across multiple floors of the building, constantly coming together and separating again, challenging established notions of performer-audience heirarchy, and working within the feedback loop of hearing/listening to the sounding space, and responding/sounding back into it.
