BACKGROUND > NextNow is a performance series focused on bringing together an eclectic blend of 
improvised music and arts, drawing on a diverse community of musicians and sound artists.  Curated by 
Mika Pontecorvo with the help of the collective improvisation project Cartoon Justice, the series takes a 
low-overhead DIY approach to performance events, in support of a counter-narrative to the excess of the 
corporate-mediated big-ticket art and performance world.  Showcasing local and international artists 
sharing their unique creative visions in sonic improvisation: http://nextnow.edgebuzz.tv/

NextNow has launched a twice-yearly festival-style celebration of improvised, experimental and new 
music, and added an intermedia improvisation components. Last May's NextNow festival 
was a benefit the Homeless Action Center. Our winter show benefitted Earthjustice and The Coalition On 
Homelessness.

NextNow has produced and curated over 20 evening performances showcasing local, national and 
international new music artists, and 5 Festivals to raise money for non-profit organizations helping 
homeless and the environment causes.
