Som Crescente is a new workshop dedicated to the craft and performance of musical creativity. It seeks to bring together musicians from any genre into focused 2 day period of intense collaboration and practice, with a concert as a culmination. Peter Evans, a recent transplant from NYC to Lisbon, will guide the workshop each month, with the assistance of a guest faculty artist. Although the music prepared and performed will be highly flexible based on the participants and visiting artist, it will focus primarily on the creation of new works, composed and/or improvised, acoustic and/or electronic, and all combinations of the above. Participants are welcome from all levels and styles, and though the size of the ensemble will change slightly from workshop to workshop, it will generally be in the 5-7 person range to facilitate close collaboration and the chance for each individual voice to shine. Som Crescente is presented by ZDB, a Lisbon institution known both for its fearless presentation of new artistic work as well as its DIY ethos.
