CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The International Society for Improvised Music is happy to announce its seventh festival conference and welcome proposals for performances and presentations. Continuing its theme of Cross-cultural Improvisation that guided recent events at the University of Michigan and York College/Roulette, the upcoming event will bring together musicians from disparate cultures to perform together and share ideas about the challenges and exciting opportunities inherent in improvising across traditions. Hosted jointly by the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and Mannes College The New School for Music, the event will enable ISIM to direct its global vision not only toward the professional improvised music world but also to the field of musical training in which recognition of the need for improvisatory experience for classical and other musicians is steadily on the rise. In addition to featuring leading creative artists from diverse cultures, the event will welcome visionaries in musical study who are making headway in this endeavor to share their insights about the road ahead for the field. Deadline Feb 1st, 2014. To read more about this CFP, click here.
