“Improdimensija” ─ is a very special initiative or even movement, exceptionally dedicated to boundless improvised and free jazz music space. It is a crossroad of music related activities such as concerts, performances, masterclasses and records publishing. “Improdimensija” bonds music lovers or even lovers of sound per se.
Frequently “Improdimensija” plays in MAMA Studio or spreads the music in Kaunas, at a private music school “Jazz Academy”. Both places can host only limited amount of people, thus, sometimes “Improdimensija” has to find more spacious places such as “Vilniaus Plokštelių Studija” to invite a wider audience into improvisational sonic adventures.
Since the beginning of “Improdimensija” here regularly play the most prominent Lithuanian musicians: Viacheslav Ganelin, Vladimir Tarasov, Vladimir Chekasin, Petras Vyšniauskas, Arkadijus Gotesmnas, Eugenijus Kanevičius, Vytautas Labutis, Juozas Milašius, Tomas Kutavičius, Marijus Aleksa, Dmitrij Golovanov, Jan Maksimovicz and many more. Furthermore, the organizers each year have an honor to host the most appreciated improvisers from all over the world. “Improdimensija” audience has witnessed remarkable performances by such musicians as Mats Gustafssons, Bary Guy, Nate Wooley, Peter Evans, Agusti Fernandez, Yoriyuki Harada, Frank Gratkowski, Per Zanusi, Jim Black, Marc Ducret, Matīss Čudars, Kirke Karja etc.
Inclusiveness and openness are two words, that best describe “Improdimensija”. This initiative is an open fora not only for veterens but for young generation as well. The youth is being encouraged to freely share their own ideas or join other colleagues. At the “Improdimensija” events, the brightest local youngsters can be heard. Kazimieras Jušinskas, Kristupas Gikas, Aurelijus Užameckis, Adas Gecevičius, Dovydas Stalmokas, Paulius Vaškas, Simonas Kaupinis, Klaudija Indriliūnaitė, Mėta Gabrielė Pelegrimaitė, Dominykas Norkūnas and many more promising young professionals have found their place under the “Improdimensija” name. Moreover, almost all guest who comes from abroad to perform at “Improdimensija” are being asked to hold a masterclass for Lithuanian students. There is no better way to learn than eye-to-eye meeting with the world best musicians.
Although it might appear that “Improdimensija” is mainly to jazz background musicians. On the contrary, the initiative welcomes everyone who seeks to broaden the existing music boundaries. That is why such musicians like composer, sound artist and improviser Gailė Griciūtė, sound performer Arma Agharta or self-made instruments creator Simonas Nekrošius have been invited to play at “Improdimensija”.
The “Improdimensija” movement is very much related to the students of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre Contemporary Music/Improvised Music Master’s Program, who have become an integral part of Vilnius and Lithuanian scene. Long lasting and honest relationship between students and teachers (L. Mockūnas and A. Mikalkėnas) in this program eventually evolved in the “Improdimensija Orchestra”. It is an integral part of the movement, which brings together alumni and current students, all those who do not imagine their life without improvised music.   Hence, the “Improdimensija” is an organism filled by unbridled energy. It is a phenomenon, which stimulates the most beautiful sonic ideas and gives them a chance to blossom out in a music lover hearts.
