The thrilling University of Miami-based Unbound Improv Ensemble emerged from an initiative of the multi-instrumentalist Matthew Taylor, percussionist Tyson Voigt and vocalist Jennifer Voigt in October, 2013. Since then, the group has performed around the city, including the Acoustica21 concert last April. While the Unbound players are superbly trained to perform the “classical” music, they also possess incredible curiosity to explore musical soundscapes beyond those prescribed in the scores. “As musicians we are always striving to expand our sensibilities and remain open to new paths,” explains Taylor.
The performance is only a part of it. It is through the focused listening to each other that new spontaneous musical experience transpire. Their virtuosity and artistry enables them to devour an hour with the most engaging and surprising musical acrobatics, often moving in the space and using imaginative performance techniques. You may need to travel far beyond the state border to hear a high caliber improvised acoustic music such as that performed by the Unbound Improv Ensemble. “It is important that more voices are heard in music community of Miami,” says Taylor about offering the city this new musical experience. May these acoustic alchemists conjure an event that will long resonate in the ears of the Miami music lovers!
