Five top Swedish improv musicians have teamed up for a unique project in collaboration with Musikcentrum Öst. The concept — to form a Swedish improv road show, festival and happening for touch down in selected cities around the world! In a continuous changing set up, each concert is a totally improvised and unique experience.

A Hear, Here! concert is also a visual treat and from the start, the award winning filmmaker Mårten Nilsson has been working on a Super 8-film around the project and elements of footage is continuously added to the performance. The film is bound for premiere in 2017 and the film is funded by the Swedish Film Institute.
