Amma Ateria - electro-acoustic surfaces
Nava Dunkelman - percussion
Electro-percussion duo of Amma Ateria and Nava Dunkelman explores distortions of time and handling of the ever present moment through restraint and release. Their array of metallic nature march forth with space expanding densities to brinks of breakage, situated to be caressed by the beautification of spaces in between. IMA have performed and collaborated with avant garde pioneers such as John Zorn, Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, and many others.
Amma Ateria aka Jeanie Aprille Tang is an audio visual artist + electro-acoustic composer/improviser. Born in Hong Kong, she gravitates to rhythms of construction sites, roaming traffic, inaudible conversations, and airplanes. Her instrument is a collection of electronic hardware and plexiglass.

Born in Tokyo, Japan and raised in a multicultural environment by an American father and Indonesian mother, Nava’s musical interests span the globe from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan to American marching band, as well as performed classical to contemporary to the avant-garde.
