For GIOfest XIII we will be hosting a special edition of GIOdynamics featuring invited guest Angharad Davies.
GIOdynamics is a monthly improvised open mic night started in Oct 2018. The night is open to everyone to take part or watch. It is our belief that it is not important how much experience you have with improvising to play with others. We welcome everyone to come and take part. People from all musical backgrounds have played at the night so there is great mix of music and musical reference points on show. Thats what we love about it! The night is curated by Jer Reid who arranges the players into various small groups who play for 7-10 minutes each.
This event will begin at 12 midday on Sat 28th of Nov with a 20 minute set from Angharad, followed by the open session until 2pm.
To take part email jerreid [at] yahoo [dot] com for the zoom link or message GIOdynamics via Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/GIOdynamics-1014332745426556
The zoom link will sent out from Tuesday 24th of November. Numbers for the event will be capped at 60.
