Through restraint and release,
electro-percussion duo IMA explores cinematic time warping sounds of dark and beautiful places with their array of metallic nature. With stark electronic expansions by AMMA ATERIA x NAVA DUNKELMAN's fierce yet atmospheric percussion, their sound marches forth with space-expanding densities to brinks of breakage, situated by beautification in between. IMA have performed and collaborated with avant-garde pioneers Ikue Mori, Pauchi Sasaki, Fred Frith, John Zorn, and many others.
