Here is a poem written by Nicholas Power which was inspired by a set of improvised music performed by me, drummer/percussionist Germaine Liu and bassist Jim Sexton at the LoD Series in Toronto.

The Association of Improvising Musicians Toronto (AIMToronto) Orchestra was formed in the summer of 2007 to rehearse the music of Anthony Braxton in preparation for their main-stage performance at the Guelph Jazz Festival in September that year, with Mr. Braxton conducting. That memorable performance was recorded and broadcast by the CBC, and has now been documented on Creative Orchestra (Guelph) 2007 (Spool Records), which is being launched with the group's performance at this year's X Avant Festival.

The Orchestra, under the artistic direction of Kyle Brenders, features several of Toronto's finest and most dedicated creative improvising musicians and, following its galvanizing immersion in Mr. Braxton's music and philosophy, is now dedicated to performing original works by its membership. The group has refined material and developed repertoire through monthly workshop performances as part of the Leftover Daylight creative music series at the Arraymusic Studio. At the X Avant Festival, the group's performance will feature new works by Kyle Brenders, Justin Haynes, Germaine Liu, and Joe Sorbara.
