Make It Up Club 15th Birthday Festival, January 2013

Since 1998, the MIUC has been presenting a weekly concert series of avant garde improvised music and sound performance in Melbourne, and 2013 marks our 15th anniversary! Join us at Bar Open for the final three Tuesdays of January to celebrate the sublime, brutal, rarefied and cathartic beauty of the contemporary, improvised sonoverse. Featuring 15 adventurous and uncompromising collaborations (one for each year of our existence), which boldly traverse idioms and instrumentations, transcend regional and aesthetic borders, and embody the very possibilities of spontaneous music creation.
