Help support Ensemble Mik Nawooj in creating new concert music.  We are a non-profit that relies on the support of our donors in achieving our mission to render a new aesthetic of concert music that is rigorous, timely, and radically inclusive. We have three key areas of focus-

  • Holding The Future Culture Summit in the Bay Area and beyond: Rooted in Method Sampling, Future Culture Summit is an event where we present innovators in various fields of disciplines and professions (performing arts, sciences, medicine, technology, and farming… etc.) who are inventing new ways of thinking and living, thereby rendering the Future Cultures.

  • Creating pioneering performing arts works : EMN is a musical laboratory where unusual and bold ideas are tested. It functions as much as a musical ensemble as a research and development lab for the future performing arts at large. One of our recent efforts is a scalable and an experiential work combining many areas of performing arts (music, dance, visual arts, and theater). Featuring the components of Hip-Hop with a classical chamber orchestra, contemporary dance, and theater, this new work seamlessly merges disparate cultures into a singular and coherent vision. It is in part a concert, an art exhibit, and a dance performance where the audience can experience the making of art taking place first hand by immersing themselves in the work itself.

  • Educational Outreach: Via masterclasses, in-school performances, and digital assets, we promote the mechanisms and positive effects of Method Sampling encouraging the public on how to apply the principle to their own fields/lives.
