Imagination Presents

  • Roulette 509 Atlantic Avenue Brooklyn, NY (map)

— a celebration of the radically diverse ways we express our lives through music —

In a snapshot of the endlessly varied forms of musical expression throughout our community, Contemporaneous hosts a non-genre musical gathering with sets by some of the most powerful artists working amongst us: daring avant-rock band Boio, “genre obliterating” Warp Trio, and Forward Music Project, Amanda Gookin’s multimedia set of solo cello works seeking to empower women and girls.

Contemporaneous will end the night with a set including pioneering new works developed by Contemporaneous IMAGINATION, an initiative that seeks to foster a culture of radical creative openness. Through open call for composers and artists to share their wildest dreams, the ensemble commissions, develops, produces, and presents the most meaningful of these works, without regard for conventional restraints that discourage large-scale, imaginative creations.
