about

The NYC Liminal Series turns the spotlight on NYC's improvised/experimental music community. Although the series is by no means a complete or thorough document, attention is placed on key figures who have helped shape the scene and its music as an ever evolving open discourse. The extraordinarily diverse backgrounds and interests of the musicians, paired with an incessant drive for research/experimentation/discovery, undermines traditional efforts of codification. Recognition of this quality ultimately lead to the structuring of this series by a most material parameter: instrument.

The instrument itself is a type of body, a limit with its own unique characteristics. By challenging and surpassing conventional methods of interaction and representation, the notion of instrument serves as a platform for reinventing and reimagining identity, a medium for a new musical language.
