about

An exploration of an alternate-historical merging of cultures represented by their most imaginative musical exports, Imperial Cereal seeks to construct a new edifice on the ancient and fertile ground of mystery, spirit, and ingenuity shared by artistic traditions the world over. In particular, we drew inspiration from the contrapuntal mastery of the High Baroque in Europe, the originators and innovators of Khayyal in the Mughal courts of North India, and the indestructible spirit of American free jazz. These influences (along with a dash of Russian microtonal esoterica) came together organically over the course of two years of playing in the catacombs of Columbia University. This album is in effect a document of our development from 2013-2015. We're excited for whatever comes next.
