Improvisors Orchestra Workshop
Doors at 7:00 PM

This Improvisor Orchestra Workshop is an invitation to Guelph and surrounding area musicians, vocalists and other players to improvise together with Bill Gilliam leading using conducted hand signals developed by Butch Morris. The hand signals are easy to learn in 10 minutes and the conductor's role is to help shape the improvisations in interesting ways. All types of performers (instrumentalists, vocal artists, laptop sound artists, keyboards, strings, wind instruments, percussionists, found & hand made instruments, melodicas, synths, smart phones and anything else that inspires you) are welcome and invited to explore this style of improvisation with us!

Entangled Pathways is a collection of original music performed by this acoustic trio who met through the Toronto Improvisor's Orchestra (TIO). These pieces are a combination of composed free floating melodies, jazz idioms and modal-chromatic tonalities as well as freely improvised creations by the ensemble. This music offers reflections on the rapidly changing and entangled terrains we live in and the many imagined pathways we could take.
