Andrew Trim is a guitarist and composer. Born on the western coast of Lake Michigan, Trim can currently be found residing in Milwaukee, regularly working with some of the most talented and unique musicians in the region, and creating everything from mind-altering improvised flights to tightly contained, composed melodies. His instrumental projects – a quartet called Hanami and a trio called Dim Lighting – are the primary vehicles for his expressions.
Critics have described Trim’s music as having a “ potent mix of sonic fluency and cinematic ambiance” (Dave Sumner, Bird is the Worm) and labeled his group’s “patient approach” as “undeniably luxurious.” Trim’s guitar playing has also been singled out for its “lovely underwater guitar tone – which – softens the edges of his lines but retains a gentle bite.” (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader).
For this performance, Trim will be leading his new quartet which features some of Chicago’s finest improvising musicians: Greg Ward, Matt Ulery, and Jeremy Cunningham.
