MAY 12TH

Improvised Round Robin Duets

17 artists enter. Arranged in a random order. Artist #1 improvises for 5 minutes solo on stage, and is then joined by #2. After 5 more minutes, #3 enters, and #1 leaves. So on. It’s a beautiful method for collective spontaneous composition, removing the ego and presenting the community in a seriously fun way.

Featuring: Mark Helias (bass), Brandon Seabrook (banjo / guitar), Hilmar Jensson (guitar), Allison Miller (drums), Amir Ziv (drums, 1st hour), Mike Pride (drums), Bob Stewart (tuba), Cooper Moore (piano), Miles Okazaki (guitar), Marika Hughes (cello), and more TBA!!
