Chicago-based, Austin-born pianist Mabel Kwan performs with Ensemble Dal Niente, Restroy, big TEEN’s Mega Laverne and Shirley, and Uluuul. She is fascinated by sound, contradictions, and what we perceive to be familiar or strange. With a style that is detached and objective but highly personal, Mabel brings a quiet intensity and playfulness to her live performances. Chicago-based composer, percussionist and turntablist KG Price performs with The Lucky Trikes, The Lucky Bikes, Chris Dammann’s 3.5.7 Ensemble and as a soloist. He designs jewelry and stop-motion animation and is constantly searching for new artistic challenges having researched movement, poetry and fashion design, as well. His work is dynamic and finds both humor, darkness, lightness and, ultimately, sincerity; traits he also brings out in his collaborators. Together Mabel and KG have performed with The Lucky Trikes and The Lucky Bikes at such venues as The Newberry Library and Cafe Mustache and as a duo at such intimate venues as the Narloch Studio in Lincoln Square.
