The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra focuses on conducted instant composition, a specific form of complex improvised music abd experimental composition. Within an oscillating process musicians and conductor create ad hoc composition, mediated by a vocabulary of hand-sign conducting. – The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra is Austria’s first orchestra dedicating itself to this method which has been developed in variety by a few improvising orchestras within the last 15–20 years, mostly referring to Lawrence D. Butch Morris’ work on ‘conductions’.
Performing in ever changing line-ups the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra unifies singers and musicians out of acoustic and electro-acoustic improvised music, contemporary composed music, jazz and eminent new music ensembles such as Tonkünstler NÖ, Klangforum Wien, ensemble xx. jahrhundert or JazzwerkstattWien and is a permanent and spontaneous welcoming host for international musicians.
Since its beginning the possible processes of merging sound and recitation, their vice versa influence, the metamorphosis of sound- and word-pictures a.o. phenomenons arising, were an additional beam of the VIO‘s poetic presence, hence the VIO is collaborating with splendid writers in experimental poetry.
The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra works within a wide range of projects a.o. collaborating with choirs, multi lingual or within interdisciplinary contexts.
The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra was launched by Michael Fischer in 2004.
