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.

ProjectsFree Improvisation

Free improvisation is one of my primary modes of expression and creation. I find it incredibly rewarding and challenging. I perform solo and in a variety of contexts both ad-hoc one-off meetings and ongoing projects. I enjoy playing with musicians/improvisers from a wide variety of backgrounds and instruments or sound-making devices. I have been incredibly fortunate to perform with these, and many other musicians.
