Free Improvisation

Free improvisation is a bold and interactive approach to composition and collaboration.

It’s the craft of exploring instrumental forces to create dynamic sound worlds.

Make your own rules! No songs, no standards, no structure. Get together with fellow musicians, collaborate and let your instincts take control in this immersive, experimental and pioneering musical form.

Find out what Free Improvisation is all about, and hear from Free Improvisation’s organiser, Calum Walker, as we ask him ten questions to get an insight into this unique and exciting group. Read more here.
