Kali Yuga

kali yuga

Conductor: Randall Hall

Rehearsals: TH 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Kali Yuga is the Augustana College improvisation ensemble. The student-faculty group explores contemporary improvisation.

Uniting composition and performance into a single action, Kali Yuga performs free improvisations; the ensemble creates the music as it is heard without prearranged musical material (no tunes, scales, chords, etc.). It is the collective expression of our different personalities communicated through sound.

Dr. Randall Hall oversees Kali Yuga.

Performing regularly on and off campus, Kali Yuga has become an integral part of the Quad Cities experimental music scene. The name Kali Yuga comes from Hindu philosophy ― it is the final stage of the cycle of time, the iron age of destruction and dissolution before the rebirth of the golden age.
