Concerti di improvvisazione e musica contemporanea da seguire sul posto nello spazio della performance - ma le opportunità sono limitatissime, con non più di sei-otto posti a sedere - oppure da casa comodamente in poltrona, divano o letto grazie alla diffusione online in streaming: questo il concetto promosso da Embedded, microserie di microconcerti in microspazi - a dispetto di una sede principesca a Bracknell (Regno Unito), presso il South Hill Park Arts Centre - che tra febbraio e aprile 2013 vede tra i protagonisti John Butcher, Jonathan Coleclough, Max Eastley, Paul Whitty e Simon Whetham.

Our series of late-night contemporary music micro concerts aims to capture the feeling of amazement and intimacy when seeing a skilled musician and performer right up close. The season features music of imagination and improvisation, with each of the three Embedded evenings held in a small, cosy venue in South Hill Park Arts Centre, with an audience of six people settled on comfortable sofas. The performers have been specifically selected to provide visual as well as audio interest, making them perfect for live streaming to a wider online audience. Starting at 10:30 pm, the artists will initially explain what they do and how they achieve it before performing a 45 minute set. The audience will be seated right up close during the performance, allowing them to experience the passion and emotion of the work as it unfolds before them. With the live streaming being filmed by professional cameramen, our online audience will be able to savour that same experience from the comfort of their homes (or beds).
