On October 7,8 and 9 October Meeting 2016 took place – an exciting three-day get-together of some of the leading young improvising musicians from the Dutch scene and those of surrounding countries, based entirely on original productions. The meeting was organized by Dutch Performing Arts and Bimhuis.
Twenty-twomusicians dreamt up and developed an exciting series of original pieces, some rehearsed in advance, others produced on the spot, with line ups ranging from large ensembles to duos or trios inspired by the spur and joy of the moment.
Bimhuis has a tradition of providing a platform for adventurous musical projects and its October Meeting served as an engaging showcase for the lively international jazz and impro scene in the Netherlands, and proved to be an optimal occasion for musicians, concert presenters, promoters and other professionals in the field of adventurous music to connect.
The October Meeting has been recorded entirely by Bimhuis Radio. You can listen on demand!
