Mad Myth Science is the creative meeting of Molly Jones, Julian Otis, Wilson Tanner Smith, and Ben Zucker, whose collective experience touches all corners of Chicago’s experimental music and performance scenes. Formed in early 2020, the group developed its voice in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, working together in live and virtual settings to develop spontaneous compositions and rituals for an increasingly unstable world. All kinds of instruments, voices, electronics, objects, language, and movement all play a part in their multifaceted, evolving performances.

Since being able to perform in public, the group has performed at a variety of notable Chicago venues, including Constellation, New Music Chicago’s Impromptu Fest, the Northwestern University New Music Conference, Cafe Mustache, and the Ragdale Foundation. They are currently planning further tours and performances outside of Chicago, as well as for their debut album.

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.
