Tuesday March 16th @ the Make It Up Club

Ren Walters’ sublime platform for “realtime composition,” THIS Ensemble, features a stellar cast of Melbourne improvisers for its first show of 2010. THIS is Ren’s long-running project for the exploration of large group improv where genre, idiom and instrumentation are sublimated by an adventurous focus on form and timbre. The group is always composed of musicians from diverse traditions who are nevertheless united by incredible listening skills, ensemble discipline and virtuosic technique. Running the gamut of freejazz, non-idiomatic improv, electronic music, punk, prog and abstract fusion, THIS is always an amazingly rewarding listening experience, where new and hitherto unheard musical constellations explode into existence before your very ears.
