Swiss Improvisers Orchestra (SIO) was founded in the "Künstlerhaus
Boswil" in the Fall of 1998. Their witty and fun-loving style tickles
and dares its audience with a constant supply of subtle surprises, giving
improvised music a new name.
Multimedial works such as "Prova d'Orchestra", Tingding"
"Exercices de Style" "Das fremde Kind" "Conduccions
Conspiratives" "Rohe Hand im Wortgestern" and "Revue
Macabre," have seen the SIO co-producing with guest artists such
as Daniel Mouthon, Doro Schürch, Christoph Baumann, Daniel Fueter,
Joseph Maria Balanyà, and Mischa Käser.
Employing methods such as procedural steps, conductions, cuts, and free
improvisation, the ensemble specializes in developing musical strategies
for the large, orchestral sounding body, examples of which can be heard
on their various recordings.
