IMPROVISED & EXPERIMENTAL 

SERIES OF EXPERIMENTAL SOUND INSTALLATIONS AND PERFORMANCES

Improvised & Experimental is a series of sound installations organised since November 2016 in Berlin. The aim of the series is to present free improvised and experimental sound and music without score (with occasional exceptions). So far over 100 performances have been organised at six different locations in Berlin, Germany, but also in Porto, Portugal, gathering over 300 Berlin-based and international artists from the experimental music scene.

 

Starting in a white cube gallery on Rosa-Luxemburg Strasse 26 in the district of Mitte, the series was established based on an idea of cellist Guilherme Rodrigues. The installations later moved into a more intimate setting in a private venue on Gormannstrasse 19. They are currently hosted seasonally every Wednesday in Hošek Contemporary’s performance space onboard Motor Ship Heimatland.
