This season Alkemie launches “Alkemie & Friends” – a series of informal, musically experimental, and multi-sensory concerts in non-traditional NYC concert settings. “Alkemie & Friends” is a forum for the ensemble to create programs that take advantage of the sonic possibilities that emerge when we collaborate with other experts in adjacent musical fields. Venues are selected in part for their ability to introduce elements that transform the sensory space in divergent ways.
