The Procrustean Bed is a record label and ongoing concert series dedicated to experimental improvised music.
The concert series is currently taking place at the venue of T-Berlin in Berlin, Germany, and is based on Kriton Beyer’s artistic explorations, each time inviting intriguing new guests to take on the creative challenge together with him. As the title implies, the concept of the concert series is to meet a different challenge in each performance, to explore and combine diverse artistic territories and to make them fit by any possible means.
As of beginning of 2016 most of the performances are being recorded, made available for download on the Procrustean Bed’s bandcamp page www.theprocrusteanbed.bandcamp.com and can also be purchased as physical CDs at the concerts of the series and online.
