Mopomoso Live Concert Series

Run entirely by volunteers, Mopomoso has as its aims and objectives the promoting of the understanding and enjoyment of freely improvised music in all its forms. We do this in a number of ways and we also play host to the UK’s longest running concert series dedicated to the music. 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.

Hexapod (in memory of Keith Tippett) Hard Edges -- Chris Dowding (trumpet & flugelhorn) Dave Amis (trombone) Ben Higham (tuba & flugelhorn) Chris Dowding writes:- ‘Based in Norwich, which I guess is the main thing. Individually, we’ve played with various musicians. I play in the quartet Rude 2.0 with trombonist Annie Whitehead, trombonist Dave Amis played in several of Keith Tippett’s groups, including Centipede, and Ben Higham worked with drummer John Stevens. Actually, the piece I’ve sent has Ben and I on flugelhorns, and Dave on trombone, as you’ll hear. Amongst other activity, Ben and I co-run a jazz night called Camouflage in Norwich, and I also play in Ben’s brass octet The Brass Monkeys, which has recently performed at Pizza Express several times’.
