Journeys in Sound presents
Contemporary Improvisation is a term that really liberates the idea of improvisation from any specific genre, and reflects what’s been going on for years among musicians all over the world.
Former NEC president Gunther Schuller was already aware of the changes in the music world in the 1950s when he coined the term Third Stream, implying that the music of today is almost inevitably a hybrid, and Third Stream was the original name of the department for its first twenty years, under the leadership of it's visionary founding chair, Ran Blake.
Each year, their selective and diverse student body transforms itself into a vibrant and supportive musical community, sharing everything they bring to the table with one another and acting as a catalyst for musical adventures no one could have anticipated.
For this event, expect an eclectic array of music played with a lot of spirit and without constraint by students from that very creative department.
