ShapeShifter Lab is a 4,200 square foot performance space in Park Slope/ Gowanus area in Brooklyn; we host the world’s most innovative artists who are looking for a flexible platform to present their work. Bass player Matthew Garrison, son of Jimmy Garrison (bass player for John Coltrane), is the co-owner and creative director with his business partner, Fortuna Sung. With many years as a successful touring musician under his belt, Matt and his team have designed the space with versatility in sound, lighting and layout, each of which can be tailored to each artist. With state-of-the-art equipment and raw space, Matt and his team are creating something truly unique and desperately needed in today’s venue scene in New York City.
Our mission is to heavily explore uses of modern technology in the development of modern forms of music and to educate up and coming artists and musicians of the historical significance of jazz/improvisation/blues/rock/funk and demonstrate the continuous evolution of modern day music based on those disciplines.
