The instruments range from analogue (Thomas Lehn) and digital synthesizers (Marcus Schmickler), amplified objects and old analogue equipment (Gert-Jan Prins) to software designed especially for improvisation (Phil Durrant); the line up varies from improvisers who started in ’60’s (Keith Rowe) to younger genereation of electronic musicians (Christian Fennesz); its aesthetics is floating from space-jazz (Rafael Toral) to noise (Peter Rehberg). The massive sound of the orchestra, sensitivity to room’s acoustical and social restraints and new concepts for each performance make them one of the most thrilling music phenomena of the last decade. The concert published on the double vinyl was part of New Music Peninsula – a series of experimental music concerts held in Wigry. It was organized by Agnieszka Tarasiuk of Residential Arts Centre and curated by Michał Libera and Michał Mendyk of 4.99. Other concerts included complete performance of “The Great Learning” by Cornelius Cardew, zeitkratzer’s reinterpretations of electronic music from Polish Radio Experimental Studio and a panorama of contemporary music in Lithuania. Some of the performances have been released by Bôłt: New Music in Eastern Europe. MIMEO performed in the church. The evening was dark, cold and windy. Each of the musicians had a separate loudspeaker. Musicians were seated by the long table placed between two rows of the benches. Almost like a last supper. Everybody believed it was the final event in the cultural programme of the Residential Arts Centre. Due to some mysterious decisions the Centre was running for one more year and was shut down on May 1st 2011. No other cultural event after MIMEO happened in the church.
