This concert features pieces ranging from the lush harmonies and quirky rhythms of Dan VanHassel’s Sea Change, to the noisy electronic soundscape of Katherine Young’s Camilles, to Hinge’s reimagining of a song by extreme metal band Meshuggah.

As a part of Indexical’s Micro-Residency Program, Kumi Maxson is facilitating weekly collective improvisation workshop spaces, every Monday* from March 27 to May 29 from 6-8pm. The workshops will consist of a short reading and listening session, followed by discussions of the liberatory political implications of musical improvisation. The workshops will cater to all levels of improvisational and musical experience (including none!), striving to create an accessible space for non-hierarchical participation and experimentation. Musicians are encouraged to bring their own instruments, however some will be provided for those who do not have their own. Masks are required for these workshops. Wind players and vocalists may perform without masks if needed.
