TIme : 5:30pm 

Location : Blip Roasters  

Age Range : All Ages 

RSVP : Open to the Public  

Description : Please join UMKC’s IMP ensemble for sonic interpretations of Kansas City’s iconic West Bottoms.  Original compositions will recontextualize the sounds of locations, embedding field recordings within a texture of orchestral strings, brass, keyboards, noise, and Hip-Hop beats.   

UMKC’ s IMP Ensemble explores improvisation in the broadest definition, where listening and responding become a way of real-time creation. IMP is a think-tank of people willing to risk and fail quickly, so any show can go on, using new individual media to explore the boundaries of medium and improvisation.
