August Open Collab – improvised music, sonic landscape, your poetry
Open Collab is a monthly livestream of music and poetry collaborations. We (Charlie + Jake) ask for submissions from all over the world and then we improvise musical worlds around the words, streaming live on YouTube from our home studio in Bristol!
Submissions are currently open for poetry performances to be considered for the event. Find out more and submit your work at https://opencollab.co.uk/submit
The deadline for submissions to August’s show is Wednesday 11th August at 7pm (UK time)
We love responding to the words and performances we get sent: being inspired to experiment with new ways of working with real and homemade instruments alike. Using our live-looping setup we will weave piano and vocals with rattling cans and field recordings of Swiss rain to create a universe of sound for a poem to live in.
Join us live and see the music created in response to an international lineup of poets and send us your clap emojis in lieu of IRL applause!
