RAIC (Richmond Avant Improv Collective) aims to expand musical possibilities through improvisation and compositions that don't fit in with regular ensembles. RAIC strives to be a place for total freedom musically. The four members sometimes play together and sometimes form our own ensembles. The only rule in RAIC is that at least one member has to be performing in the ensemble. RAIC has attempted avant garde, soundtrack, ambient, noise rock and free jazz, classical, post rock, etc.
