Featuring the release of a new online mixtape and three dynamic performances, this event will kick off 2018 for the Comfort Station’s Gather Series. The evening will feature composer/improviser Katherine Young, sound artist Allen Moore, and the Daniel/Lyons/Billington Trio. This event also marks the online release of the 2017 Gather mixtape, featuring music from artists presented on the first year of the series. All proceeds from this mixtape — and partial proceeds from drink sales at this event — will go directly towards the support of Gather’s 2018 programming.
Gather is an experimental music series bringing musicians from different scenes, backgrounds, practices, disciplines, and communities together for connection and artistic exchange. This series is curated with attention toward introducing musicians who may not otherwise cross paths and whose works dialogue in compelling ways. In this way, we hope to foster collaboration and coalition amongst different experimental arts communities in Chicago.
