High Zero Festival

This week marks the beginning of the High Zero Festival, the premier festival of Improvised, Experimental music on the East Coast, fully devoted to new collaborations between the most inspired improvisors from around the world.

The festival brings together 28 core musicians each year, but also involves a much larger subculture of musicians in Baltimore and on the East Coast. Unlike many related festivals, High Zero is not narrow in terms of sensibility or subculture, but rather widely inclusive of all the different types of experimental music-making in the moment. The fact that half of the festival's core participants are from Baltimore speaks to the depth of Baltimore's experimental music subculture, which in recent years has grown to be one of the richest cities in the country for experimental art.
