The INaudible Collective promotes the practice of improvisation in music, the arts and culture in general. In doing so, it favors improvisation called 'free', or more correctly 'open' where freedom is not intended as acquired at the start, but rather as a way to track accompanying the movement of life.
A peculiar and vital characteristic of open improvisation is that decisions and rules are revealed in the action itself, gradually unfolding the performance. Improvising is conceiving and realizing the music at the same time (or other performance). All in one gesture.
INaudible recognizes and promotes the educational value of the practices of (free) open improvisation. By managing its own limits and uncertainty, improvisation can help building in and through music (and the arts in general) a way of being together that promotes equality while respecting differences and uniqueness of individuals. In doing so, it provides some practical tools to cope with the complexity of the world
Improvisation has become a practice to build bridges, not only between cultures but also between different historical periods, between different artistic media and technologies of all time.
INaudible intends to promote as much as possible the construction of a network of improvisers: an essential tool for survival and visibility in a fragmented and marginalised community such as the one of improvised music.
The dynamic between the practice of collective improvisation and the awareness of the artistic, social, economic and political limits feeds the subsequent will to overcome them. This drives us to want going beyond the routine and engaging then the social context and its changes.
The crisis in which we find ourselves today is not only economic, but also, and more important, ecological, cultural and ethical. It is an identity crisis but also of meaning, crisis of coexistence: a global systemic crisis.
But this serious crisis is not only the threat of disaster, but also it could be opening up new opportunities and potential, immediate radical change. In its small environment open improvised music can and must play a role.
