New York City’s only animation ensemble, iconiQ: The Soundtrack Orchestra (or iconiQuestra), is a musical nerdfest produced by musicians with an unhealthy addiction to animation. Founded in 2011 by Bobbie Lee Crow III, the Fractured Atlas fiscally-sponsored chamber orchestra pays tribute to anime, cartoon, and video games music with a super-special-button-mashing combo of monthly medleys, live concerts, and interactive social events. Our mission is to showcase the highly imaginative works composers have created for highly imaginative worlds. Sweet.
