The VIENNA IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA focuses on conducted instant composition,
a specific form of experimental composition and complex improvised music.
Within an oscillating process musicians and conductor create ad hoc compositions, -
mediated by a vocabulary of hand-sign conducting.

The VIO is Austria's first orchestra dedicated to this method.
Mostly referring to Lawrence D. 'Butch' Morris'/NY work on 'conductions', it has been further
developed in variety by a few improvising orchestras worldwide within the last 15-20 years.

Performing in ever changing line-ups the VIENNA IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA unifies singers and musicians
out of acoustic and electro-acoustic improvised music, contemporary composed music, jazz and
eminent new music ensembles such as Tonkünstler NÖ, Klangforum Wien or ensemble xx. jahrhundert.

Since its beginning, the possible processes of merging sound and recitation, their vice versa influence,
the metamorphosis of sound- and word-pictures a.o. phenomenons arising, were an additional beam
of the VIO's poetic presence, hence the VIO is collaborating with splendid writers in experimental poetry.

Moreover, the VIENNA IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA works within a wide range of projects a.o. collaborating
with choir, multi lingual and within interdisciplinary contexts.
In 2017 VIO invited Madrid conductor Josefa 'Chefa' Alonso and had the pleasure to work with
the BUDAPEST IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA. We collaborated with GGRIL (Grand Groupe Régional
d'Improvisation Libérée, Canada) and continue our beloved calls for JUMPiN-CHOIR.

The VIENNA IMPROVISERS ORCHESTRA was launched by Michael Fischer in 2004.
