Barcelona – February 24 2016

This was Nocturna Discordia #60 and the 4th free improvisation jam at Soda Acústic and, wow, what a big crew showed up this Wednesday, there were a total of 28 musicians including the opening trio! Was it for the flyer??

Once more the groups were formed randomly, but this time the possibilities ranged from duo to quintet, picking the performer’s names out of my pocket. That was cool but, for sure, gotta perfect the formula when there’s such a crowd willing to play…

The opening trio was

Patxi Valera – drums
Nuno Rebelo – electric guitar
Luiz Rocha – clarinets

And the jamming musicians were

Pablo Rega – electric guitar
Gabriel González – drums
Ariel Zutel – hang
Pablo Vazquez – electric bass
Johannes Nästesjö – cello
Sarah Claman – violin
Pau Sola – cello
El Pricto – alto sax and piano
Ilona Schneider – voice
Eitamar – electric guitar
Bernat Giribet – piano
Mariano Caramasa – piano
Cesar Sangay – piano
Fernando Carrasco – acustic guitar
Tomas  Becket – piano
Teté Leguía – electric bass
Owen Kilfeather – voice and electric guitar
Hilario Rodeiro – electronics
Almudena Vega – flute
Pedro González – violin
Diego Caicedo – electric guitar
Caro Tierhs – violin
Mojca – piano
Laura “a secas” Arcalís – electric guitar
Borjas – electric bass

Here’s a record of the past free improvisation jams at Nocturna Discordia: the 1st, the 2nd and the 3rd.

Reminding future participants: this jam happens once every 5 weeks at Soda Acústic and every Wednesday there’s concert organized by the Discordian Records crew.

3rd Impro Jam @ Nocturna Discordia

Jam de Impro 3
This was Nocturna Discordia #56 and the 3rd Free Improvisation Jam Session.
Barcelona, 20 January 2016

The trio that opened the night was:
Patxi Valera – drums
Àlex Reviriego – double bass
Luiz Rocha – soprano and bass clarinets

Then, once again the routine was:
1. pick a name out of a hat;
2. throw a four-sided dice to define if the musician is playing either solo, duo, trio or quartet;
3. back to the hat, pick the other names, if applied.

At the second round we were throwing 2 four-sided dice so that everyone could play once more.

Great music by the opening trio plus:
Ilona Schneider – voice
Pep Mula – drums
João Braz – cello
Pau Sola – cello
Teté Leguía – electric bass
Carlos Ródenas – electric bass
Carlo Mezzino – piano
Diego Caicedo – electric guitar
Olivier Jambois – electric guitar
El Pricto – alto sax
Don Malfon – alto sax
Miquel Jordá – sopranino sax
Tuna Pase – voice, flute and electronics

Here’s a record of the 1st and the 2nd Impro Jam @ Nocturna Discordia.
