    The mission of A.I.M is to create an evocative, interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical music and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history.

Untitled Commission for Mostly Mozart Festival

Kyle Abraham and A.I.M will create a new dance work exploring death and reincarnation through a digital re-imagining of Mozart’s Requiem.

Funding from New Music USA will support the creation of music for a new dance piece commissioned by the Mostly Mozart Festival for 2021.  In recent years, I’ve had a fascination with death and mythology of the afterlife. Having experienced death and loss in various ways at this point in my life and career, I’m thinking about this moment as a potential re-birth, taking inspiration from the endless faith-based possibilities of the hereafter.  This commission offers me an opportunity to make my most abstracted work to date.
