Honestly Same is an amplified acoustic and synthetic quintet that improvises patient and contemplative music. The sound worlds breathe, loop, iterate, layer. A shiny digital synth finds a companion in a cello or recorder. The sound of a 90s PC powering up sympathizes with a plucked piano string. Honestly Same finds inspiration in insect and frog calls, resonant harmonies, and the blue light of a neighbor’s TV. Zach Good plays clarinets, recorders, synthesizer. Lia Kohl plays cello, synthesizer, radio, phone, a little bit of everything. Mabel Kwan plays piano and accordion. Zach Moore plays synthesizer and contrabass. Sam Scranton plays percussion and electronics.
Utilizing a blend of woodwinds and electronics, Luc Mosley draws upon sounds of the past to forge new pathways for music of the future. In addition to leading his own groups, he performs with Big Syn, Graphics, and the Chicago Freedom Ensemble.
Olivia Harris – Cello
Matt Riggen – Bass/ Trumpet
Adam Shead – Drums
Side Yard Sounds:
We are so excited to continue our Side Yard Sounds Series in 2022 with a bevy of creative musical artists who traverse diverse forms: from the intriguing waters of experimentalism and the avant-garde to forward-reaching jazz and other modes that are expanding our vision of music both in and outside of Chicago.
Compound Yellow, in Chicago’s Oak Park neighborhood, has long been a site for visual art exhibitions of all kinds. Its emphasis on the artist as a protagonist who incites our impulses to challenge the status quo, and considers brighter alternatives, reminds all that taking risks and new steps is what keeps our arts and social circles truly alive.
Join us then as we embark on bold new adventures in sound & space with a series of outdoor concerts held safely in our colorful, art-adorned yard.
