Focusing on free improvisation, experimental and noise music, Place of Safety is a new monthly open session in which players, noise makers, listeners and musicians of all levels meet and make music together. Anyone can join in; participants will be placed at random in ad hoc ensembles that improvise together for around fifteen minutes; whoever isn’t playing forms the audience; the next group is formed and the process repeated so that as many people are included as possible. Unsafe music in a (relatively) safe environment.
New ideas are emerging from the meetup and participants are encouraged to add new rules, write scores and try unusual stuff out to help direct the flow of the music
It happens roughly once a month in the former police station turned art, dance and music space, The Island. http://www.theislandbristol.com/

Go up the stairs and it’s the room at the top.
