The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra dedicates itself consequently to conducted instant compositions, a specific method and praxis of experimental composition and complex improvised music. - Mediated by a vocabulary of hand-signs, conductor and musicians create ad hoc compositions within an oscillating process. The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra is Austria's first orchestra focusing upon this method which has been developed in variety by a few consistently working European improvising orchestras within the last appr. 10-12 years, mostly referring to Lawrence D. Butch Morris' (New York) work on 'conductions'.
From its beginning the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra cooperates with splendid contemporary poets within the field of experimental lyric. Performing in ever changing line-ups, the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra unifies singers/musicians out of acoustic and electro-acoustic improvised music, contemporary composed music, jazz and eminent new music ensembles, such as Tonkünstler NÖ, Klangforum Wien or ensemble xx. jahrhundert.
The Vienna Improvisers Orchestra was launched by Michael Fischer in 2004.
