A Grand Rapids native, Miles Coleman has been producing music under the alias mishigami since early 2014. As a classically trained pianist, Coleman layers keyboards and synthesizers over rich percussion to create ever-evolving songs that continuously unfold. His style creates a soundscape of rhythmic, textural beats influenced by jazz melodies with intricate chord structures.
The concert will also feature visuals by Nate Eizenga. For the past decade, Nate has been fascinated by performances that use visual imagery to enhance the experience of live music. Frustrated with preprocessed, press-play videos, he taught himself to mix and manipulate video in real-time, finally playing his first live show with musician Darkly in early November 2015. Since then he has continued to refine his craft, playing alongside Darkly as well as DJs from Rocksteady Disco, FourFour SoundSystem and Vinyl Fetish. Possessing both musical synchronization and artistic spontaneity, his work is guaranteed to mesmerize even the most reserved viewers.
Other concerts in the 2017 Concerts Under the Stars Series include April 6 with folk music by Emma Loo and Sam.
