Suggest Donation $5 (FREE)

Lia is the audio/visual project of Lo Bise, a Chicago-based experimental electronic
musician and recent graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Working
largely with digital platforms such as Ableton Live and Max MSP, they create pieces
inspired by Minimalist composition, techno and ambient.

Max Guy’ multi-media work takes the form of performance, sculpture and installation,
clumsily giving form to existential crises, moral and ethical dilemma. He received his
BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2011, and MFA from the Department of in Art, Theory and Practice at Northwestern University in 2016. Max has performed and exhibited at DEMO Project, Springfield, IL; Bar4000, Sector 2337 and Prairie, Chicago, IL; AZ-West, Joshua Tree National Park, CA; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Signal Gallery, New York, NY; Ghost, Deep River, CT; What Pipeline, Detroit, MI; Federico Vavassori, Milan, and the Manila
Institute, New York, NY.

Gathe 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. Gather is curated by Allen Moore, Nick Meryhew,
and Rebecca Himelstein
