Oxford Improvisers was established in 2001 to continue the work begun by the Oxford Improvisers’ Co-operative in the 1980s with the following objectives:

1. To promote the performance of improvised music in the Oxford area primarily by musicians living, studying and working in the area. This performance can freely improvised; or by integration with graphic, textual and other minimally notated scores.1

2. To promote a culture of listening and meaningful dialogue in the performance of improvised music. Improvised music is not seen as a display of isolated virtuosic ability but as a sensitive intercommunication between individuals and audience. We do not see music as a universal language, but a set of agreed methods of communication by a particular community. We aim to facilitate interaction between the many different musical cultures that co-exist within Oxford.
