Mopomoso Monthly

MOPOMOSO was founded in 1991 by guitarist John Russell and pianist, trumpeter and composer Chris Burn to promote freely improvised music in all its forms and where applicable its relationship to other forms of contemporary music making. From the outset the aim has been to present the music on a local, regional national and international basis and to involve relative newcomers as well as more established musicians.

Mopomoso moved from its original venue The Red Rose to the Vortex in February 2008, where it has been ever since. The Vortex continues to support the series as a fellow volunteer-run organisation and an important platform for free improvisation, also playing host to John Russell’s annual Fete Quaqua in August.
