Since 1998, the London Improvisers Orchestra has been dedicated to the arts of conducted improvisation, or ‘Conduction’, and free improvisation.
The orchestra was formed from the ashes of the 1997 touring group of American improviser Butch Morris, the pioneering inventor of Conduction. Since its birth, the group has had hundreds of members pass through its ranks, including Evan Parker, Pat Thomas, Byron Wallen, John Edwards, Lol Coxhil, Caroline Kraabel, and Mark Sanders. To this day, the group is led by founding member Steve Beresford, an icon of the UK’s improvisation movement.
For its one-off sound exhibition at DIVFUSE, the orchestra will be presenting unreleased live recordings, accompanied by photos, from throughout its history.
A two-day film and sound installation, made for the DIVFUSE exhibition space and a one day 16mm film workshop.
