Feedback from the Free Improvisation Workshops
The Ateliers d’Improvisation Libre (AIL) have been running since January 2022 and at Le Périscope since May 2022.
Since their inception, 43 workshops have been held with just over 70 improvising musicians and 4 special workshops led by Jean-Marc Foussat, Cesario Fa, Xavier Charles&Mathieu Bec and Julia Robert.
On Monday 5 June, a few of them will be coming along to play for Vous some unheard-of music in the original sense of the word, freely improvised music, in different formations ranging from solo to tentet (10 people playing together).
“If it’s difficult to give a proper name to freely improvised music, it’s even more complicated to describe the activity itself.
Diversity is the most obvious characteristic of this music. It does not adhere to any particular style or language, nor does it conform to any particular sound.
Its identity is determined only by the musical identity of the people who play it”. (Derek Bailey)
