About IMOO:
The Improvising Musicians of Ottawa/Outaouais is a local organization and group of musicians who draw on jazz, classical, folk, noise and rock music in exploration of contemporary practice in improvisation.  
We are a platform and resource for emerging artists to present their work and collaborate with other artists, and exist as a means to community development and networking to bring artists together, and present their work to a broad audience. 
With this in mind, over the last two years we have organized over 60 concerts and featured the finest improvisers in Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto and beyond.  Not limited only to musicians, we also present video artists and dancers.  Simply put, in the last two years, we have put Ottawa on the map as a city for improvising musicians.
