‘Winter Sounds’ is a series of indoor events in the cozy upstairs gallery space that features 5 artists or groups from a variety of backgrounds and locations. The general motif of the evening is focused on shorter improvised sets in the electronic/electro-acoustic/ambient genres. The evening of January 28th features artists from Chicago, Oak Park and Milwaukee areas:

Donny Mahlmeister/Theo Katsaounis:
Donny and Theo have been longtime members of the Chicago indie-rock and improvised music community. They have played together in A Tundra, Shred Aquarium and The Shape Of, plus countless free improvised music ensembles. Separately, Theo has played in Joan of Arc, Aitis Band, Anatomy of Habit and Dead Rider. Donny played and collaborated with Early Day Miners, Collections of Colonies of Bees and Judson Claiborne.
This performance will feature an exploration into guitars with electronics.

Raquel Gonzalez:
Wielding an electric violin, looper, and some effects pedals, Raquel records herself improvising and composing music regularly. She creates lush soundscapes, ambient drones, and experimental string music in her home studio. She enjoys making different kinds of audio art that pairs well with poetry and various sound textures.
Nick Turner:
Nick Turner is a Chicago based musician and social worker that utilizes music and sound creation as a vehicle for emotional experiencing and expression.

Milwaukee, WI area artist, Wavefiler, uses synthesizer hardware, tape recorders and computer-aided composition methods to create electronic music that is experimental, ambient and sometimes beat-driven. Sonic explorations range from tape-driven textures to repeating and evolving melodic figures. Wavefiler also focuses on developing synthesized sound designs to aid meditation and healing.

Joshua Davison/Nathan Tucker:
Joshua Davison and Nathan Tucker have played together in numerous musical acts over three decades. Their electronic duo, String Theory, released music through the UK label Skam, Chicago’s Consumer’s Research and Development and Milwaukee’s Wobblyhead. After String Theory, they went on to explore electronic power pop with founding member of OK Go Andrew Duncan as Parks and Gardens, and the more meditative but still song-oriented Thirds.

This performance will feature Josh playing a digital sampler and synthesizer accompanied by Nate playing lap steel guitar.
