Improvised & Experimental is a series of sound installations organised since November 2016 in Berlin. The aim of the series is to mainly present free improvised and experimental sound and music with no score (with occasional certain exceptions). So far 83 performances were organised at 6 different locations in Berlin, Germany and Porto, Portugal, and with more than two hundreds Berlin based and international artists from the experimental music scene. Starting in a white cube gallery at Rosa-Luxemburg Strasse 26, the series was established with an idea of Guilherme Rodrigues. The installations moved later to a more chamber music setting venue at Gormannstrasse 19 and later to a former seat of Hošek Contemporary on board of Motor Ship Heimatland in Historischer Hafen close to Fischerinsel.
