Opensound is a Greater Boston concert series, featuring experimental and electro-acoustic improvised and avant-garde music. The musicians work with musical tones and noise equally to bring forth a wide range expressive sounds. We bring artists from disparate backgrounds together for unique events in Somerville, Massachusetts. The process of improvisation combines the distinctive voices of its individual performers. The music that results is often surprising, beautiful, ugly, and dynamic. It is not uncommon to hear music made of electronic crackles, noisy multi-phonics, gurgling, hissing, quiet vocalized gibberish, atonal noodling, bowed metal, blowing sounds, post-everything harmony, and a thousand shades of hullabaloo. You may also see video and dance cohabitating with buzzes, clicks, drones, wooshes, and bleeps in a bizarre galaxy of pitch and spectra!
