Description

Always innovative the AACM series, Eccentric Coincidental Configurations, will take improvisation and spontaneity to a new level by engaging the audience in identifying which aggregation of musicians will actually perform together at each concert. The band member’s names will be placed in a box a week before the first concert and the performers for the first concert will be drawn. At the end of each subsequent performance, a member of the audience will draw names for the next, and so on. No matter what combination of musicians are brought together by this “out of the box” method, the result is sure to be spectacular. This experiment in creative interactivity builds on the AACM tradition of boundary-breaking innovation and gives the audience a chance to actually influence the music, itself. Coincidence by design.
