Un-expect the expected.

The offer is to the musician is

In the beginning, the brief is that within an hours drive of Manchester are many musicians from the free improvised music (and associated leaning) who generally do not meet and play on any significant basis : or so it seems. Somehow geography, boundaries keep us apart, where-as in London the same distances either measured in miles /or time traveled doesn't’ keep artists apart; i.e. there is more of a mixing up and playing together. The aim of Centrifuge is to change this isolation and separation, by delivering a concert format that enables a sharing and celebration that is: free improvisation in music, for musicians resident in the "north".
