SPINE is a Liverpool-based event showcasing new experimental music; including noise, industrial, drone, and ambient music.
The Gathering is a space for improvisation, where musicians can be together and play what they see fit in the moment.

The Gathering is not a concert:
everyone in the room is a participant, including those who may be listening.
The Gathering is not a rehearsal or recording session:
it is the actual thing itself.
