...In music, when you do something new, something original, you're an amateur. Your imitators - these are the professionals. Morton Feldman.

Counterflows is a contemporary music festival produced by AC Projects & OtoProjects and curated by Alasdair Campbell & Fielding Hope. It has been devised as a collaboration between two organisations committed to promoting challenging and thought provoking work in the context of what might be called the experimental music scene, looking at marginal music practice within an extensive list of music genres: Free-jazz, dance music, non-systematic classical, improvisation, deconstructed pop, almost-hip-hop, new (?) folk music and many more...

Held in April, Counterflows also promotes gigs and events during the year. The festival is about exploration and collaboration and investigates networks of artists, audiences and producers internationally and locally who share an adventurous outlook to the arts and are willing to participate and examine different practices and methods with the goal of creating new experiences within music and the arts.
