The format? Simple. One musician starts a solo improvisation lasting five minutes. Another musician then joins for five minutes of duo improvisation. After those five minutes, musician #1 leaves the stage and musician #3 joins musician #2 for another five minutes, and so on and so forth for two hours. The music? Expect the unexpected. A once-in-a-lifetime experience with 20+ artists from the realms of jazz, electronics, experimental rock and everything in between, curated by the Red Bull Music Academy, Search and Restore, Boom Collective and the creative minds behind the acclaimed Undead Music Series.
Launched in June of 2010 with the aim to attract new audiences to serious music while challenging expectations, the Undead Music Series celebrates the explosively creative, adventurous, instrumental music being made in New York City and beyond.
