Anthony Coleman has been one of the key figures on New York's music scene for nearly four decades. His work bridges the gap between Composition and Improvisation, Uptown and Downtown, and spans a wide range of genres and practices including Free Improvisation, Jazz, Jewish music (of various types), and Contemporary Chamber Music. At the dawn of the 1980s, after earning a Master’s Degree in Composition from the Yale School of Music, Coleman immersed himself in New York City’s forward-thinking circle of genre-confounding composers and improvisers that would come to be known as the Downtown Scene. The first two records Coleman played on, Glenn Branca’s Lesson No. 1 and John Zorn’s Archery, are classics of a then- emerging avant-garde. He has been a member of the faculty of the New England Conservatory since 2006 and has also taught at Bennington College, the Bard MFA program, and the Mannes College of Music.
DoYeon Kim is a Gayageum player who is making her own genre of music by incorporating Korean Music, World Music, Free Jazz, Jazz, and Improvisation. She makes an effort to share and bring a new and broader approach to music, focusing in the context of Korean music, improvisation, and unique technique development. Experienced in traditional Korean music and modern works alike, DoYeon has performed several of her own solo recitals and concerts in Korea, America, South America and Europe. In 2018, DoYeon released improvisational music album which is called “Macrocosm” with Joe Morris. Her album is reviewed as “ an impressive and captivating example of incredible skill and a diversity of approaches from players.... Highly recommended.” In 2017, DoYeon released her album (GaPi), followed by a sold out release concert in Korea. GaPi was later nominated in 2018 for a Korean Music Award, Korea’s version of the Grammys, in the crossover album category. Furthermore, she was selected as an 2018 Emerging Artist Award at St. Botolph Club Foundation.
