Mopomoso Live Concert Series
Run entirely by volunteers, Mopomoso plays host to the UK’s longest running concert series dedicated to free improvisation. Our next concerts are listed below. Do come and check the music out. Ideally free improvisation is a music to be enjoyed live. If you can’t make it there are plenty of videos from previous performances in our Past Concerts section. Just click on a date to bring them up. Have fun and thanks for dropping by.
Edward Lucas (trombone) Daniel Korda (electronics) Ken Ikeda (electronics) trio
A finely detailed and expressive group that is both elegant and eloquent. All aspects of sound production are scrutinised and employed as valid musical material which in turn gives an immersive and complete listening experience.
Not on The Guest list – Ole Mofjell (drums) Natalie Sandtorv (voice) duo
This young Norwegian duo have been active for a couple of years now and play with a lot of energy and relish for the rough and tumble world of free improvisation. An open style that invites the active listener to enjoy the fun.

He has been living and working as a musician in Sweden for many years where he plays a variety of single reed and electronic instruments. Having appeared here before with the group SQ4 he returns to play a short solo set on bass clarinet.
