“Whitney Johnson plays in a few different outfits around town (including Verma and Disappears side project E+), but this month she celebrates the release of a proper solo album as Matchess, “Seraphastra,” on local indie label Trouble In Mind.
Her darkly ambient, minimalist synth works are layered and richly textured, and as she explains, the otherworldly elements in her music might be just that.” -Jessica Hopper, Chicago Tribune
Natalie Chami adopted the TALsounds moniker in 2009 for her solo explorations in the drone, ambient, and electro-acoustic improv disciplines. In live performance, Chami’s analog synthesizers weave together into drifting loops that evolve in tandem with her vocal leads and choral harmonies. Her meditative sessions stretch into hypnotizing depths of stream-of-consciousness multi-instrumental input, sinking into expanses of infinite sustain and cresting into bursts of noise from an arsenal of oscillators and effects pedals. As a member of free music trio Good Willsmith, she has toured the country and released eight albums since 2012, including the LPs The Honeymoon Workbook (2014) and Things Our Bodies Used To Have (2016) on Mexico City-based label Umor Rex. Chami performs as half of ambient duo l’eternebre, and co-founded the experimental collective/netlabel Screaming Claws. She was born in Ontario and lives in Chicago.
