New NIME’s are presented at the NIME conference but what becomes of them afterwards? The aim of the Open Jack is to put different NIME’s together in a session to show how they function in an improvisational setting that is not too prepared. In this session we combine NIME instruments with some traditional instruments and live electronics. The pool of participants in the Open Jack will form different formations, based on their own preferences, in which they will play a number of improvisations. In order to guarantee the quality and purpose of the evening we expect the participating musicians to:

  • be experienced (group) improvisors that are versatile in a number of styles.

  • use live electronics as an integral and expressive part of the instrument or to have good command of extended techniques on an acoustic instrument that makes blending with live electronics a natural musical action.

  • bring NIME instruments that they actually play if they can lay their hands on them.

  • have a flexible personality…
