Hi everyone,


I think Lauri Hyvärinen and I will 'lead' this time but hopefully it won't be too constricting.

Please RSVP here so we can have an idea who is coming. I think we'll try to split the time between totally free playing and some loose structures and exercises, probably some fairly standard improvisation tools. But depending on what people & instruments are around, we can mix things up.

Let's also think about getting this happening in June and thereafter. Lan Cao and Gregor Siedl are going to be in Helsinki in July and could also be great for being guest hosts....

Greetings. As John said, I can't come this time around, but it's nice to see this thing taking shape again. In June, I would prefer the week before Midsummer, 19th to 23th of June.

Hi everyone, I will be attending when I can, the problem is, during the weekdays/office time I am usually busy. Anyhow, I promised to Lauri that I could bring some thoughts/exercises later this summer to experiment with you. Hoping to play with you soon!

Yeah I think Saturdays work best, most people are busy working or doing something like work.
