Sebastian Mullaert has announced a brand new event series concept and label called Circle Of Live.
Launching at UK Freerotation Festival this weekend, Circle Of Live will focus strictly on live acts only: “The main intention with Circle of Live is to inspire people to improvise; let their life be an improvisation; a spontaneous expression of life. In one perspective this is a concept with clear visions and definitions but at the same time the core aim of the project is to allow both us, the artists, and the audience to drop concepts and habitual patterns in the creative process of dance and music,” Mullaert explains.
Thus, the project will consist of freeform improvised jam sessions – including both collaborative and solo performances – with no set times decided in advance, allowing both audience and performers to stay curious and be fully present in the moment. An initial tour spanning 11 of Europe’s best venues has been already confirmed. Further details are still TBA.
Other confirmed collaborators for Circle Of Live so far are: Âme, Aurora Halal, Dorisburg, Eitan Reiter, Johanna Knutsson, Leafar Legov, Ljudbilden & Piloten, Mathew Jonson, Neel, Steevio & Suzybee, The Mole, Tobias.
As to the accompanying record label of the same name, selected cuts from the associated artists will be released as EP series, including the recording of their live performances. The first release, which started as an improvised live jam and was finally recorded in the middle of the desert above the Dead Sea, will be released on September 14th. Pre-order it here!
For the official debut at this year’s Freerotation festival, Sebastian will take over the Kith stage joined by the likes of Dorisburg, Johanna Knutsson, Mathew Jonson and Steevio & Suzybee. Head here for more info!
