MOPOMOSO stands for MOdernismPOstMOdernism SO what? and is a name coined in 1991 for the promotion and understanding of freely improvised music in all its manifestations and as a contrast to the then prevailing critical trends. A major part of our work has been promoting live concerts in what has become the longest running unbroken series dedicated to free improvisation in the UK. Our next concert is listed below.

‘Another good year – bring a cake!’
An annual end of year celebration of all things improvised with a ‘cast of thousands’.
Since its inception some years ago Mopomoso’s end of year improvisorama has become a focal point for musicians to come and play in a series of short sets; to meet old friends and to make new ones. Certainly ‘the best party in town’ where audiences get a chance to experience a wide range of music in a less formal setting than our regular concert series. We usually end up with about 50 different musicians taking part and the list of participants changes right up to the date so please keep an eye on the website. Everyone is invited to bring some food to share!
So far confirmed are Ross Lambert, Steve Beresford, Kay Grant, Charlie Collins, Andrea Caputo, Beatrix Ward-Fernandez, Rachel Musson, Daniel Thompson, Richard Sanderson, Benedict Taylor, Dave Tucker, Maggie Nicols, Matt Hutchinson, Emmanuel Lorien, Satoko Fukuda, Daniel James Ross, Harry Gilonis, Julie Kjaer, Anthony Donovan, Portia Winters, Rick Jensen, Viv Corringham, Matt Chilton, Raymond MacDonald, Matt Scott, Paul Morris, Eun-Jung Kim, Seth Bennet, John Garcia Rueda, Paul Jolly, Alice Eldridge, Jez Parfett, Henry Lowther, Noel Taylor, Olie Brice, Mandy Drummond, Hannah Marshall, Noura Sanatian, Jim Dvorak, Adrian Northover, Paul Shearsmith, Marcio Mattos, Marilza Gouvea, Alan Wilkinson, Ricardo Tejero and John Russell.
