The Immediate Music Festival is Today (April 29, 2016) in Denver. The festival is broken into two parts – a workshop in the morning and a concert in the evening. The festival features the Flux Conduction Ensemble lead by my good friend/collaborator and Conduction maestro J.A Deane. Note my friend Victoria Lundy who I featured in a post yesterday is part of the Flux Conduction Ensemble. See Facebook invite for more details on the event https://www.facebook.com/events/1085813711439976.
Here is an article on the festival from Westword Magazine.
The Immediate Music Festival is celebration of collaborative improvisation. Students and the community are invited to attend workshops and demonstrations of Soundpainting, Conduction, Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening, Group Improvising, and to enjoy wonderful improvisatory performances and interactive presentations.
All presentations and workshops will be made by extremely experienced, thoughtful, and gentle artist/clinicians including Jane Rigler and Janet Feder from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Master Improviser and Soundpainting expert Evan Mazunik, French Horn Professor/Improviser/Educator Jeffrey Agrell from The Universty of Iowa, and Conduction maestro and master improviser J.A Deane.
The days events will be followed by an evening concert featuring the group Sone (Jane Rigler, Janet Feder, Evan Mazunik, Mark Harris) improvising and accompanying short silent films, and the Flux Conduction Ensemble led by J.A. Deane, collaboratively improvising using the gestures of Conduction.
This event, including all workshops, presentations, and the evening concert, is free and open to the public. Registration is highly encouraged (see below) and lunch will be provided to registered participants.
