    Chicago-based improvisational artist Damon Locks and his 15-piece Black Monument Ensemble have released their debut album, Where Future Unfolds.

    The ten-track record initially started as a solo project by Locks, but eventually grew to include artists such as clarinetist Angel Bat Dawid, singer Lauren Robinson and dancer Anna Martine Whitehead. The LP, which was preceded by the release of singles “The Colors That You Bring” and album closer “From a Spark to a Fire,” is a live recording of the ensemble’s debut at Chicago’s Garfield Park Botanical Conservatory.
