Imager is a group of Bay Area musicians who perform original compositions and extended improvisations that draw on elements from progressive rock, ambient/trance, funk, jazz and other global musical influences. At heart, we are experimenters and risk-takers who are committed to making interesting, engaging music without limits whether it’s on stage, in the studio, or for a film soundtrack. Imager composes collaboratively with no restrictions, resulting in music that ranges from melodic downtempo trance to high-energy jams built on unique rhythms and modes.

One of the hallmarks of our sound is our palette of instruments and effects that allow us to create new approaches and ideas. These include analog Moog synthesizers, the legendary Fender Rhodes electric piano; electronic percussion mixed with acoustic drums; fretted, fretless and 8-string basses; and – of course – soaring vocals and voice effects.

All of this gear is not only used on our studio recordings, but also in our live shows, ensuring that we deliver the same energy and sound in person and electronically. We have played at a number of the top clubs in the Bay Area, as well as at art openings, private parties, and corporate events.

Orpheus Nine emerged with an “instant classic” (ProgArchives) in 2017’s Transcendental Circus. While the centerpiece is its six-part, nearly-22-minute title track, the NJ-based quartet deftly balances virtuosity with emotion and melody in every one of the album’s “beautifully crafted songs” (PROG). Listeners to this “very impressive debut” (Progression) have cited elements of ELP, King Crimson, Rush, Saga, Styx, Genesis, Frank Zappa, Gentle Giant, Spock’s Beard, The Flower Kings, Yes, Marillion, and Return to Forever — yet any past influence quickly yields to the fresh sound of a band focused on future possibilities.
