HIGH ZERO Festival is one of the largest and most radical festivals
of improvised music in the country, bringing together an amazing
group of players each year for all-new collarboations, united
united in their wil-to-experiment and desire to cross boundaries
into the unknown. Ranging across the territories of jazz, sound
art, electronic music, noise, contemporary composition and mad
scientism (at least), the festival is flavored by the visionary
imagination and noncomformost sensibility of Baltimore's vital
and unusual experimental scene, incorporating many levels of possibilities
simultaneous: freely improvised concerts, site specific performances,
sound installations, and workshops throughout the city.
Zero is supported by City Paper
Zero is organized by The High Zero Foundation, a 501(c)3
Nonprofit organization. The festival is an outgrowth of The
Red Room, an unfunded but vital space which has presented
over 450 concerts of improvised and experimental music (as well
as experimental film, dance, and performance) since it began in
1996. The Red Room is located at and sponsored by Normals
Books and Records.
Note: The festival is invitation
only, so please understand we DO NOT take submissions for
future HIGH ZERO festivals. However, we are always interested
in submissions to The Red Room,
which is the primary source of the pool of players who are then
invited to the festival.
