Next week, the Gaudemaus muziekweek 2020 is opening its (virtual) doors.
Last week, Gaudeamus posted about the WhatIIIF? initiative of bringing together improvisation practitioners from all disciplines, for which the foundation behind Genetic Choir is still in the process of gathering funds for.
An Expandable Networked Universe for the Art of Improvisation
There are many modern composers who work with improvisation, and it is lovely that we can reach out to the Gaudemaus community as well with our idea.

As an update for those who follow the initiative:
Our first attempts at finding funds for this project from the funding bodies we know have been unsuccessful, mainly because we imagine a knowledge gathering platform run by artists, rather than a project resulting in concrete artistic work (which most cultural funds are seeing as their core business to fund).
If you, as part of the network of Genetic Choir, know any (international) fundraising routes we could take – funding bodies that value initiatives for new forms of artistic knowledge development, sharing and artistic research – please let us know!
You can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org
And concerning Gaudemaus – the festival will be happening live and online next week and is surely worth a visit! Find the programme here.
