Doors at 7, show at 7:30
…makers of diverse experimental sound and music practices for connection and creative exchange. A series curated by Adam Shanley, Allen Moore, Nick Meryhew and Rebecca Himelstein.
Gather is an experimental music series bringing musicians from different scenes, backgrounds, practices, disciplines, and communities together for connection and artistic exchange. We curate this series with our attention toward introducing musicians who may not otherwise cross paths and whose works dialogue in compelling ways. By doing so, we hope to leave potential for collaboration and familiarity amongst different experimental music forms in Chicago.
This month's performance features a double bill of two phenomenal artists, wrtch and travis:
Ambrosia Bartosekulva (wrtch) weaves together the severity of life and the ever present release of the void into dense tapestries using voice and body as sound source. Ambrosia’s most recent release, Rabbit Holes (andotherexits), was composed and produced after experiencing death during a heart attack. In follow up to the soft, comforting caress of their September release, Sympathy for the Creator, RHAOE displays a rare penchant for versatility and depth.
