The flowers die in the burning fire... 

this is the notion of time


Mirrors. Constraint. Echoes. Noise. Flowers.
 

Amma Ateria [electronics]           Nava Dunkelman [percussion]
 

Through restraint and release,
the electro-­percussion duo of Amma Ateria and Nava Dunkelman explores distortions of time with their array of metallic nature. Their sound marches forth with space-expanding densities to brinks of breakage, situated to be caressed by beautification in between. IMA have performed and collaborated with avant-garde pioneers John Zorn, Fred Frith, Ikue Mori and many others.
 

Amma Ateria (a.k.a. Jeanie Aprïlle Tang) is an audiovisual artist and electro­acoustic composer. Born in Hong Kong, she gravitates to rhythms of construction sites, roaming traffic, inaudible conversations, and airplanes. Her instrument is a collection of electronic hardware and plexiglass.
 

Nava Dunkelman is a percussionist and improviser based in the Bay Area. Born in Tokyo, Nava’s musical interests span the globe from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan,from classical to contemporary to the avant­ garde.
