Fat Pigeon

Based in Chicago, Fat Pigeon is an experimental music trio consisting of bass clarinetist Emily Beisel (USA), percussionist Luis Fernando Amaya (Mexico), and guitarist Craig Davis Pinson (Mexico). Fat Pigeon makes use of both score-based composition and visceral free improvisation, aiming to create gripping gestural music as a collective unit. The group’s debut album, FANG POET I, was released in 2020 by Gilded Records.

~Nois

Founded in 2016, ~Nois (pronounced “noise”) has become one of the premier ensembles in the United States by combining contemporary chamber music and improvisation to connect with audiences in unique concert experiences. Heralded as “fiendishly good” (Chicago Tribune) and known for their “supremely sensitive balance and control” (Chicago Classical Review), ~Nois has been awarded top prizes at prestigious chamber music competitions including the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the M-Prize International Arts Competition.

Carol Genetti

Carol Genetti is a Chicago-based vocalist whose work encompasses sound and visual art media. Her palette is primordial, existing in a space where “language” and “music” have yet to be formulated into familiar cultural patterns. Genetti’s aesthetic is one of raw power, yet also delicate and subtle. She likes to combine various devices with her vocal performance as she “refracts and abrades her wordless vocals with electronics” (Bill Meyer, The Wire). She has performed with many improvising musicians, including Jack Wright, Eric Leonardson, Peter Maunu, Olivia Block and many others. Most recent recordings include a duet with Claire Rousay “Live at Elastic Arts” (Astral Spirits) and a collaborative release with visual artist Gwyneth Zeleny Anderson “Chyme” (Suppedaneum).

Samuel Scranton

Samuel Scranton is a composer/performer/artist based in Chicago. He improvises and records music with percussion and electronics. He makes evening-length tear-jerker conceptual ceremonies. He makes installations with friends that take the form of guided tours, psychedelic waiting rooms, and swarming sonic creatures.

He plays music in bands: Honestly Same (with Zach Good, Mabel Kwan, Lia Kohl, Zach Moore), Beautifulish (with Katherine Young), Physique (with Neil Quigley), with records released on Amalgam and Shinkoyo Artists Pool.
