Nava Dunkelman The Stone Residency, IMA
IMA will be presented as part of Nava Dunkelman’s The Stone Residency on Saturday, February 4th at The New School.
IMA is the electro-percussion project of electronic sound artist Amma Ateria (HK) and percussionist Nava Dunkelman (JP), based in California and New York. Through restraint and release, IMA depicts expressionistic noise music of Japanese poetry with the meticulous industrial and serene. Striving for a balance between precision of instrumentation, filmic transitions between silence and densities are driven to brinks of breakage, situated by beautification in between. IMA marches forth with starkness and surrender into the aftermath of destruction, and attempt for transformative regeneration of beauty through catalysts of pleasure.
