Idan Morim Quartet - Idan Morim’s musical practice centers around creating frames, strong and clear, so that the most majestic chronicles can unfold.
The Israeli native - New York based guitarist and composer stands out in his compelling yet sharp and intense style and sound. Departing off of musical traditions advocating improvisation, intensity and the stepping into imperfections - Idan’s musical storytelling is both intricate and primal.
The young guitarist had already established himself twice, working professionally from age 16: Once as an in-demand musician in Israel, and again in New-York where he’s been rapidly acquiring a reputation for his playing and composing since his re-locationing just a few years ago.
Beyond his constant endeavors as a bandleader, Idan has always been immersed in many different projects, bands and styles of music - striving to confluence his personal sound and vision with that of others - taking part in numerous performances and recordings, as well as composing for film and dance.
His original music, Idan performs under the name I.M, and he can be heard in a verity of New York’s iconic venues such as 55 Bar, Cornelia Street Cafe, Highline Ballroom, Rockwood Music Hall, Pianos and many more in addition to his weekly trio concerts at Injera NYC on Sunday nights.
Nokia Bell Labs with The International Contemporary Ensemble and Seth Cluett Experiments in Art & Technology - The International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) is an artist collective that is transforming the way music is created and experienced. As performer, curator, and educator, ICE explores how new music intersects with communities across the world. The ensemble’s 35 members are featured as soloists, chamber musicians, commissioners, and collaborators with the foremost musical artists of our time.
A recipient of the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award and the Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, ICE was also named the 2014 Musical America Ensemble of the Year. The group currently serves as artists in residence at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Mostly Mozart Festival, and previously led a five-year residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
New initiatives include OpenICE, made possible with lead funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, which offers free concerts and related programming wherever ICE performs, and enables a working process with composers to unfold in public settings. DigitICE, a free online library of over 350 streaming videos, catalogues the ensemble’s performances. ICE's First Page program is a commissioning consortium that fosters close collaborations between performers, composers, and listeners as new music is developed. EntICE, a side-by-side education program, places ICE musicians within youth orchestras as they premiere new commissioned works together. Yamaha Artist Services New York is the exclusive piano provider for ICE. Read more at iceorg.org.
