Hybrid Sessions #9
Ken Ganfield- electronics
Jan Chalupa- drums
Hybrid Sessions is a new monthly series at Kampus Hybernská, the next step after last year’s Sólové series in Skautský Institut. We will feature an improvised duo set with two musicians coming from different backgrounds to form a new constellation. Afterwards, we will host a jam session open to all musicians, regardless of background. We want to create an open environment where musicians feel free to be creative in the moment, nothing is predetermined and the only expectation is a high level of presence. A basic back line will be provided.
