Free Improvisation Jam #4

Soda Acústic
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

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

Here’s how it works:
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.

Impro Jam at Soda Acústic – Nocturna Discordia #32 – 1st July 2015

Discordian Records organizes Free Improvisation concerts every Wednesday at Soda and yesterday was the first jam session. The opening concert was a quartet composed by Ada Rave (ts), Nicolas Chientaroli (pn), Vasco Trilla (dr) and me, Luiz Rocha (cl).

Ada y Nico curate the Impro Jam in Amsterdan. Playing and sharing a house with them at a the Free Flow Festival in south Italy and joining some great jams in Portugal at MIA and Desterro made me feel the urge to see such a thing in Barcelona: a meeting place where free improvisers – with different backgrounds, concepts and experience, can share music and communicate.

Simple mechanism: for each performance we threw a 4 sided dice to define if the group was either a solo, a duo, a trio or a quartet; then we picked the names of the musicians out of a hat. The grand finale was El Pricto conducting an improvisation with all the musicians who wanted to join.

Will be repeated.

edit.
A big synchronicity… today (one day later) the pals from Sessions at Robadors are closing the season with a jam.
