The 12th iteration of Other Minds’ series, Latitudes featured vocalist/composer Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, sound artist/dronesmith Chris Duncan, and the electronics and percussion duo IMA.
IMA is Nava Dunkelman x Amma Ateria, marches forth with stark percussion and electronics through noise music of Japanese poetry. Deconstructing and dissolving heavy music through restraint and release, IMA strives for a balance between meticulous detailed precision of instrumentation, filmic transitions between silence and densities, driven to brinks of breakage situated by beautification in between. IMA has been presented in residency at The Stone, New York City (2016), San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, SF (2016), San Francisco Art Institute (2018), and CCRMA, Stanford University (2018). Performed and collaborated with Ikue Mori, Pauchi Sasaki, Fred Frith, John Zorn, Matmos, Zeena Parkins, Erik Friedlander, Brian Chase, and many others.
Chris Duncan is an Oakland California-based artist who employs time, repetition and accumulation as a basis for experiments in visual and sound based media. An overriding theme in current works is the use of natural forces, such as the sun, the moon and the ocean as conceptual and compositional prompts for both visual and sonic efforts. He has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally. Outside of his studio practice, Duncan, along with his partner Maria Otero, runs LAND AND SEA- a small press and project space in Oakland. Chris Duncan received his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts, his MFA from Stanford University and is represented by Halsey Mckay NY.
