Warsaw | 18th Improvised Music Festival 'Ad Libitum'

AdLibitum 23The 18th Festival of Improvised Music ‘Ad Libitum’ will take place in Warsaw on September 19 - October 24, 2023 thanks to the support of partner organizations (STOART, ZAiKS), as well as thanks to unique gestures of solidarity of friendly non-governmental organizations and social cultural institutions: Hashtag Lab , Jasna 10, and above all ‘Warsaw Autumn’.

This year's program will present a dialogue based on improvisation between contemporary and early music, between the past and the future, new technologies and historical performance. They will be presented by creators of instruments modeled on old ones or reconstructed according to old treaties (Ryszard Lubieniecki), and artists combining early music with futuristic inventions (Maja Miro). An important topic is the autonomy of objects - instruments that become improvisation actors, participating, among others, in concerts of Eirik Brandal's robotic sound sculptures.

Stars: Steve Beresford, one of the most active and versatile musicians on the British improvisation and experimental scene, and double bass player John Edwards, who appeared already at the Ad Libitum festival, and with them - for the first time in Poland - violinist Mandhira de Saram, who co-founded the Ligeti Quartet, and for several years has been devoting herself to the art of improvisation.
