Beginning his musical journey at the age of three, when he was fascinated by the rhythmic patterns of a drum, Miles Coleman would grow to become known as the artist known as Mishigami.
Along the way, he would study classical piano and be later introduced into the world of jazz, which would influence his distinct electronic style of music.
is a part of the thrilling new music series at the Grand Rapids Public Museum, Concerts Under the Stars
in the Chaffee Planetarium, where while reclining in comfortable seating, attendees can experience the wonder of the cosmos projected above as they take in the music of our region’s electronic, folk, funk and jazz inspired local music acts.
A Grand Rapids native, Mishigami has been performing since early 2014 and has developed a nice following of music fans because of his brand of taking multiple layers of keyboards and synthesizers and marrying them to an infectious percussion-driven beat to create an almost stream of conscious flow to the compositions. His style creates a soundscape of rhythmic, textural beats influenced by jazz melodies with intricate chord structures.
And no planetarium show would be complete without a visually-rich presentation on the museum’s great dome.
For the Thursday night concert, Mishigami’s compositions will be accompanied by Nate Eizenga, whose ability as a video DJ involves live mixing in real time videos to create a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Locally, folks may recall seeing his visuals first in 2015 with Darkly on stage, but since that time Eizenga has worked with Rocksteady Disco, FourFour SoundSystem, and Vinyl Fetish.
This is the third concert in the series and is sure to expand the minds and consciousness of those who will venture to edge of the universe by way of the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
Admission: $10 for GRPM members, $15 for non-members on the day of the concert. For further information about the series, please go here
