EXPERIMENTAL IMPROVISED MUSIC OPEN WORKSHOP @ THE RED ROOM THIS SUNDAY

Why stay home and watch some contest between brutes and a half-time show with some teenie-bopper howling into a microphone when you could come to the Red Room and make music together?!

WHEN: Sunday, Feb. 1, 7 PM
WHERE:
Red Room, inside Normals Books and Records, 425 E. 31st Street, Baltimore
ADMISSION: Free

A workshop for anyone interested in playing experimental improvised music in an uninhibited, non-competitive, focused-on-the-work environment. Players who have often never met come together and try to make interesting "never heard before" music in a real-time environment. It involves as much or more listening as playing, and is a great chance to hone one's improvising skills/approach. It is also a social chance to meet and connect with other players.

The Volunteer's Collective (Previously "The Volunteer's Collective's Crap Shoot at The Red Room") has been running more or less continuously since The Red Room opened in 1996. Thousands of musicians have passed through it, including many notable ones.

Bring your instruments, extension cords, amplification, ears, etc.

As always, this workshop is free as in moolah and free as in improv.
