The four members of the Brooklyn-based collective Motions combine the rhythms, timbres and melodies from their extensive and diverse backgrounds – traditional and contemporary musics from Japan, Mali, the Middle East, Brazil and the US – to create a unified sound that is both eclectic and organic. The music seamlessly ranges from abstract improvisation to heavy groove, highlighting the flavors and qualities of the different instruments while celebrating their universality.
For this residency, Motions will break down their personnel while inviting various guests week to week to further broaden and expand their tonal palate.
