Norman W. Long

Lia Kohl is a cellist and sound artist based in Chicago. Zander R aymond is an interdisciplinary artist + musician living and working in Chicago.
Lia Kohl and Zander Raymond create delicate music with synthesizers, cello, and radios.

Norman W. Long and Sara Zalek have been collaborating for over five years, most often spending time listening and walking in Chicago Parks, especially Big Marsh Park and Marian R. Byrnes Natural Area in the Calumet Region. They share interest and research into the practice of Deep Listening, as developed by Pauiine Oliveros. Her work, along with their continued exploration of intentional listening, contact mics, field recordings, sound walks, musicality in noise, synthesizers, and being present with one another cultivates their performance together.

Their Digital AlbumSteelworkers Drone produced by Reserve Matinee is available on Bandcamp. “This recording communicates a real dance of solidity and impermanence. Movement of water, wind, and birds making for foundation and foreground.”

We are so excited to be featuring these talented individuals.

Donations of $5+ encouraged to support the arts and programming.
