The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra,
one of Scotland’s foremost contemporary music ensembles and a leading
light in European experimental music, releases its 5th CD, GIOpoetics.
The Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra (GIO) is an ensemble of 25 musicians
from diverse musical backgrounds that include jazz, contemporary classical,
traditional, and avant/experimental pop. Improvisation can take many forms
and GIO is committed to drawing on a broad range of approaches, including
the use of pre-determined structures, conventional scores, graphic scores,
'conduction', film and visual media as stimulus. The orchestra’s
previous work includes a host of international collaborations with world
leading improvisers and 4 critically acclaimed CDs; Munich and Glasgow
(2004), Which Way Did He Go (2005), Witch Gong Game (2007) all on FMR
records and Separately and Together (2008) on Emanem records.
