This can take many forms and GIO is committed to exploring all possibilities including, for example, graphic scores, conduction techniques, conventional and non conventional notation etc. One area of particular focus is completely free large ensemble improvisations.

The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra have been expanding and developing their music since 2002 through varied collaborations and projects. Throughout this period of growth the abiding concern of the band has been to explore improvisation in a large group context. This can take many forms and GIO is committed to exploring all possibilities including, for example, graphic scores, conduction techniques, conventional and non conventional notation etc. One area of particular focus is completely free large ensemble improvisations.

There is significant debate within the improvisation community as to whether large ensembles can effectively play improvised music that is completely free i.e. has no preconceived structure or plan or conductor/leader. Indeed, many of the visiting musicians that the band worked with over the years have suggested that completely free improvisation in a band of more than nine members is futile. GIO continues to argue through performance and collaboration that this is not the case. Collaborations to date: Evan Parker inaugural workshop - Oct 2002 Workshop with George Lewis - May 2003 Workshop and gig with Walter Prati - 2003 Concerts in Munich with Evan Parker and ICI Ensemble - Sept 2003 Glasgow Jazz Festival with Keith Rowe - July 2004 Week long project with Maggie Nicols - Oct 2004 Workshop with Gunter Sommer - March 2005 Glasgow Jazz Festival with Fred Frith - July 2005 Workshops and gigs with Gunter Sommer, Dresden Ensemble and Maggie Nicols - Sept 2005 Performance of Witch Gong Game II/10 with Barry Guy and Maya Homburger - Oct 2005 Forthcoming Tour to Dresden Oct 2006 Read more on Last.fm.
