Connecting the dots in European improvisation, Jazz Connective is a 2-day festival of creative interplay celebrating contemporary improvisers and how they work and play.
Thursday night at Jazz Connective features maverick pianist Elliot Galvin, whose stupendous creativity has earned him comparisons with Django Bates, though Galvin’s singular approach has affirmed his reputation as a true original. A 12 Points alumnus, Irish audiences will remember his trio’s stand-out performance in Dublin in 2018.
Next, Irish guitarist and electronic pioneer Shane Latimer joins forces with the captivatingly shamanic French drummer and electronics wizard Ar Ker, and saxophonist Linda Fredriksson of Mopo, a unique musical encounter brought together exclusively by Jazz Connective.
Rounding out the evening are Vula Viel, a superbly spicy, post-punk, Afro-jazz style trio featuring Bex Burch on the gyil, a large African xylophone made of sacred lliga wood, while bassist Ruth Goller and drummer Jim Hart weave intricate rhythmic structures around Burch’s trance-tastic lines. A band which prompted Iggy Pop to say, “Dance to it, make love to it, consume it, listen to it, stare at the clouds to it!”.
Expect the unexpected in Dublin this 11th and 12th December as IMC host a selection of world-class improvisers and collaborators from both home and abroad at the Project Arts Centre.
Jazz Connective is is a collaborative project supported by the Creative Europe – Cooperation Project. It is presented in Dublin by Irish project partners Improvised Music Company (IMC).

For the Arts sector, the last few months have been a time of crisis, but also a time of reflection. The building is a luxury and we miss it.

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More
