Asian Improv Arts Midwest presents: Tatsu Aoki’s The MIYUMI Project
Tatsu Aoki’s The MIYUMI Project returns to Constellation as one of the longest
standing amalgams for improvisational collaborative musical endeavors. The ensemble
draws upon the aesthetics of Japanese traditional music and Chicago’s avant-garde jazz and experimental music. Their presentations are improvised compositions that stem from a conceptual framework for each band member to interpret, which is then transformed into a contemporary musical immersion for the audience. Each successive grouping of MIYUMI Project musicians over the past two decades have contributed to the unique blending of modern application with traditional sensibility. The final result is a
continuous evolution of a live and raw musical happening. This evening will feature members from the current roster of the MIYUMI Project including: Mwata Bowden, Edward Wilkerson Jr., Jamie Kempkers, Kioto Aoki, and special guest Tsukasa Taiko.
