Based in New York City, Impromptuo is an innovative improvisation-focused duo made up of violinist Katherine Kyu Hyeon Lim and pianist Joey Chang. The duo has been commissioned and presented by Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Fifth Wall Performing Arts, House of Yes, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Metropolis Ensemble, and National Arts Diversity Integration Association. Though primarily trained in European classical music, Impromptuo draws influence from traditions of free jazz, experimental electroacoustic music, etc., and suggestions from you, the audience!
For this Massivemuse, Impromptuo will be performing "Darkroom Processing: 吃飯了嗎?/밥 먹었니?", a 30-minute original film that is live scored by the duo.
You'll see scenes of New York City, but more importantly, you'll see the duo's beloved friends depicted on the projector, centering the people who they care about the most, simply being themselves and enjoying life.
The phrases in Han characters and Korean (which translate to “have you eaten yet?” in English) are customary greetings that signify care for another person. The phrase references our own respective heritages of Taiwan and South Korea, and it references all of the delicious food and camaraderie shown in the film.
Note: Alcoholic drinks will be sold by MÔTÔ Spirits at the entrance. No outside drinks permitted (this is not a BYOB event). Please enjoy this distillery's offerings to support this amazing local business!
