Released in: Portugal    

"Ernesto Rodrigues and Guilherme Rodrigues travelled to Glasgow to play a concert with Aileen Campbell and Neil Davidson at the Streetlevel Photoworks Gallery in Glasgow in June 2007. A recording with the Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra was also arranged which took place the following day.

The music on this CD comprises three free improvisations and a discretely structured piece by Raymond MacDonald - distributed talk - which came from the instruction to play three relatively short improvisations with short silences between."-Creative Sources

"The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra have been expanding and developing their music since 2002 through varied collaborations and projects. Throughout this period of growth the abiding concern of the band has been to explore improvisation in a large group context. This can take many forms and GIO is committed to exploring all possibilities including, for example, graphic scores, conduction techniques, conventional and non conventional notation etc.

One area of particular focus is completely free large ensemble improvisations. There is significant debate within the improvisation community as to whether large ensembles can effectively play improvised music that is completely free i.e. has no preconceived structure or plan or conductor/leader. Indeed, many of the visiting musicians that the band worked with over the years have suggested that completely free improvisation in a band of more than nine members is futile. GIO continues to argue through performance and collaboration that this is not the case."-Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra website
