Microtones is an electronic music collective started in 2018. Our events have taken place primarily in the historic Forest City Lodge #180, home to the Elks for over 100 years in Ithaca, NY.

Together with the members of the Elks, we have created an inclusive space for appreciating music from musical artists from around Ithaca and beyond who are pushing the creative boundaries of electronic music. Partnering with this historic organization, Microtones regularly offered support toward the physical upkeep of the Lodge and contributes to an Elks goal of sponsoring activities focused on community building. The Microtones events showcase the historic Elks Lodge of Ithaca and their mission, while promoting an atmosphere of inclusion and tolerance.

We are now also hosting events in Detroit where we wish to play a small role in helping bring people together, build camaraderie through art and music, and convert sound into tangible support for people.
