Volunteers' Collective, Sunday May 6, 2018

WHEN: Sunday, May 6, 2018, 7:30 PM (Elaborate set ups must occur prior to our start time. Doors open 7:15 PM)
WHERE:
The Red Room at Normals Books and Records, 425 E. 31st Street, Baltimore
ADMISSION: free

You are cordially invited to come play free music!

Every month, the Red Room hosts the Volunteers’ Collective. It’s a free session of experimental and improvised music. In this cordial, informal setting, we focus on listening and collaboration. Players of all skill levels participate.

Try out a new technique or new instrument in a non-judgmental setting. Meet new and veteran improvisers. Bring a friend. Experience new brain-states.

Our PA is sometimes in high demand at these events. Consider bringing an acoustic instrument or if you need amplification, bring a speaker. Access to the PA will go to those who arrive first.


Curious about the format? We loosely call it a workshop rather than jam session. Our main mode of operation involves selecting small subsets of attendees to play for several minutes at a time. It’s like a miniature High Zero Festival for locals. Typically, everyone gets opportunities to play multiple times with many different performers. We occasionally practice small and large group exercises. We have a projection screen and a nice PA, although many play unamplified or with their own loudspeaker. Come check it out!
