NEXT NOW: A Celebration In Eclectic Improvised Musics/Arts The series aims to present emerging artists to new cross-genre audiences. Artists whose performance incorporates improvisation in varied and novel forms. The series takes a post-modern curatorial approach, going beyond the currently popular local trend of avant-jazz to bring together an array of styles both of groups sharing the bill on a particular evening and within the groups themselves, drawing from indigenous and traditional musics, near-popular forms such as avant-rock, post-rock, progressive fusion, freak folk, noise, etc.; and contemporary art music (electro-acoustic, abstract electronic music, conceptual sonic art, chamber, free and avant jazz) and fusions of the above. Future Next Now evenings will bring in additional elements of visual, performance, and multimedia improvisational arts.
