Matt Weston – solo percussion + electronics
Weston has performed throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. A student of Arthur Brooks, Bill Dixon, and Milford Graves, his collaborators have included BillCallahan/Smog, Kevin Drumm, Mary Halvorson, Ben Miller (ex-Destroy All Monsters), Roger Miller (Mission of Burma), Jim O’Rourke, Jeff Parker, and William Parker. He is currently a member of the Arthur Brooks Ensemble V; and Arc Pair, with Chicago-based drummer Amanda Kraus.
Carol Genetti is a Chicago-based vocalist whose work extends to sound and visual art media. Her palette is primordial, existing in a hypothetical space where “language” and “music” have yet to be formed and formulated into familiar cultural patterns. Genetti’s aesthetic is one of raw power, yet also delicate, subtle, and precise. An exquisite soloist, she is often also heard in the company of other improvising musicians. She has been performing in North America and Europe, mostly as a vocal improviser, mostly in collaborations with other musicians, including Jack Wright, Eric Leonardson, Peter Maunu, Olivia Block, Andrew Clinkman, Albert Wildeman, Aaron Zarzutzki, Asimina Chremos, James Falzone, Jeff Kimmel, Steven Dorocke, Jim Dorling and Jim Baker. You can listen to some of her recent work at Soundcloud.
