We are composers, musicians & visual artists.


The Radial Conservatory creates environments of light and sound that invite the audience into the center. Orchestral compositions, avant-garde electronic works, and immersive atmospheric imagery come together to create expansive, visceral art. Radial concerts create meditative spaces that conjure a shared imagination, bringing us into contact with a greater depth of being.

We are creators who seek not to perform or display our own art but rather assemble into an entirely different space. A space where people can step out of the everyday to engage their imaginations & connect with something deeper, something quieter within them. The slow, sweeping, lush world of neoclassical & experimental music is brought to life in the spectacular visual world of light & color that surrounds the musicians & reaches out to touch the listeners.

These different mediums come together to bring us somewhere we can’t go without our imaginations, blurring the line between performer & listener in a new kind of immersive, contemplative concert experience.

We are based out of Nashville, TN, but our collective is made up of artists from around the world who contribute on an ongoing basis in varying degrees of frequency. 

The Radial Conservatory is led & curated by Thad Kopec & Stephen Proctor.
