Liverpool Quartet play 50:50

Liverpool quartet play system 50:50

The Liverpool quartet is a research and development group for the music system 50:50


System 50:50 full description is here URL LINK

Short description:
The general approach is by way `free improvised music` but in 50:50 each improviser is only active/improvising for 50% of the duration of the piece of music.

As a starting point, to trial 50:50 there is a rehearsal group which is researching how System 50:50 works out in practice.
Vocalists and instrumentalists (however defined) are welcome to join this group.

In addition to these closed sessions, concert opportunities will be taken when the opportunity arises.
The quartet is drawn from the contact list of 8 or more names. It is not a closed group of four names.

The next session is Wednesday 7th February 2018 at 2.00pm. There is `one seat` available
