A night of improvisation for musicians and non-musicians alike
About this Event

The Ego Free Jam is a monthly night of improvisational music - electronic and acoustic - for musicians and sound makers of all skill levels.

WHAT HAPPENS?

We'll go on a co-creative journey, with emphasis placed on listening to and supporting each other. There will be space for dancing and body movement, feel free to make art, or just listen.

There are no spectators, only creators. Allow for the magic to happen!

The opening ritual is an invitation to overcome our resistance to self-expression. Take a little risk and delight in knowing that it didn't K*ll you ;)

  • 7:30 PM: Doors open, time to settle & mingle
  • 8 PM: JAM #1
  • 10 PM: JAM #2

This is a shoes-off event. Let loose.

Pay as you are able, we suggest $15-20.

THE SIX JAM GUIDELINES

- Explore & Play!

- No judgment - of yourself or others.

- Claim space: Do a solo, stand out, be loud, stay connected, and step back when it’s time for someone else to claim space.

- Listen to others.

- No spectators. Even if you're not making sounds, be present, tune in.

- Have fun!

EGO-FREE IS DELIGHTFUL!

The ego is the part of us that wants to keep us safe in the world and tries to make us NOT do something. It shows up as fear and embarrassment. When we get the urge to "do it right” out of the way, we can play and feel the delight.

DO I NEED TO BE A MUSICIAN?

Not at all. You can pick up an instrument and improvise, vocalize, move your body, make something, or just listen.

WHAT TO BRING?

You are encouraged to bring an instrument, dancing body, art supplies, favorite toy, whatever inspires you and is fun for you. Or come as you are. We have percussion instruments, a piano, synthesizers, mics, & more.

FOOD & DRINK

We'll have both by donation.

IS THIS A REOCCURRING EVENT?

Yes! It's every first Saturday of the month (check the website to be sure). Hear about future jams through our FB, IG (@delightfactorynyc) and email (delightfactoryNYC.com/signup), or follow us here on Eventbrite.

CAN I COME FOR PART OF IT?

Sure! Try and come before either of the jam starts but you're welcome any time. Stay for however long or briefly you want!

HEALTH

COVID is still here. Please attend at your own risk. We’ll have cross air where possible, hepa filter, and sanitizing spray and wipes for instruments. If you're having symptoms, please stay home. We encourage masks. Thank you!

GETTING THERE

ABOUT DELIGHT FACTORY & THE JAM

The Ego Free Jam started as a monthly event in our living room in 2017. We decided to create a permanent space for the jam, as well as for art shows and other events that involve music, dance, soulful exploration & play. In the fall of 2021 we opened Delight Factory as a bold, supportive, intimate, and welcoming space for creative and curious people to come together, explore their interests and selves, while having a good time. We'd love to hear if you have feedback or ideas for a collaboration. -- Elke & Jason, co-founders
