Glad Cloud is a monthly series that celebrates the rich landscape of Chicago musicians working with ambient music. Curated by Benjamin Mjolsness, the series provides an opportunity for ambient artists to color the air, walls, and liquids of the Whistler in a deliberately non-intrusive manner. Visitors can enjoy their cocktails and companions while the music envelops the room around them.
Dan Mohr is a member of the Chicago based ambient ensemble Dhalgren (with Adam Vida, Sam Wagster, Alex Inglizian). Before forming Dhalgren, Mohr played in a number of ambient/drone groups such as Dreamweapon (DRMWPN), Relaxation Record and Gleaming. He is also a frequent collaborator in many experimental composition projects and is an active improviser with musicians across Chicago's experimental/jazz/noise/ambient spectrum.
Jordan Martins plays guitar and steel guitar, as a sideman for space-country singer Angela James, loose folk/ambient ensemble The Plastic Council, and in various improvisation-based projects.
