The Frakture sessions in Free Improvised Music welcomes all levels
of musicianship and musicians who are willing to participate and
engage in the music. Not unlike a walk or a chat with friends free
improvised music is a music that does not know its destination at
the point of departure, openness to listening, interaction, and
creative new ideas are central to the music we create.
Whether you are new to music playing or a skilled artist looking
for a different experience these session have a lot to offer and
provide opportunities to develop your confidence and skills in music
making. Freely improvised music will often be tagged as experimental,
creative or new music, and although hard to define here are some
themes we seek to explore to enable musicians to develop their abilities
to simply play a music that is not composed.
· Attentive listening
· Risk taking from a position of safety
· Different Dynamics; different dynamics in music and people
· Unlearning mechanical methods of music making
· Explore technical ability and the creative process.
