Curated by Han Bennink
The incomparable Instant Composers Pool Orchestra are like the Jedi Knights of improvisation: a collective of musical marvels hacking the conventions of their individual instruments, setting an arena to clash, challenge and coalesce with one another. Founded by the late pianist Mischa Mengelberg and maverick skinsman Han Bennink, the ICP Orchestra is part jazz band, part chamber orchestra. When performing live, harmony can be found in chaos and set arrangements are often employed playfully to instill confusion. Above all, the Composers Pool's a one of a kind celebration of individuality within a collective.
