Solos Duos Todos

  • San Diego Art Institute 1439 El Prado San Diego, CA, 92101 United States (map)

Admission: $5

SDAI is pleased to invite experimenters working with sound, video, movement, and other media, in collaborative improvisation.

Performers are invited to bring a reasonable amount of gear to experiment with, set up in a circle, each perform 3 minute solos (getting to know you), then 3 minute duos (AB, BC, CD, DE, EF, FA – ideally with people you haven't played with before), then a short set of everyone together (5-10 minutes). This is not an open mic, so please don't expect to play anything precomposed.

The goal is to experiment in collaboration, try new styles/equipment, and meet new people. Please bring a small set up with practice amp, mono into the mixer, acoustic, or your own projector. For dancers/movers, the floor is smooth concrete, no marley. The instrumentation/medium is open, but the structure is fairly rigid. Performers ought to be willing to collaborate and leave each other space. Audiences have the opportunity to see/hear talented performers of San Diego in chance encounters.

Participation is FREE with RSVP
Email: with subject "Solos Duos Todos" and include your equipment/instrumentation plan
