About the artists:
Terminal Moraine is an experimental noise duo founded by Abigail Johnson and Andrew Dyet. Terminal Moraine performs improvised noise sets influenced by deep listening techniques and uses a variety of synthesizers, acoustic instruments, and field recordings. These performances have been described as meditative and range from ambient and calm to aggressive and overpowering experiences.
Kim Nucci is an Oakland/Chicago-based multimedia artist, composer / improviser, and technologist. They perform on saxophones, electronics, voice, and live projection. Nucci's research interests explore the pedestrian cybernetic body through critically examining our relationship with technology and with our instruments. Their solo performance practice is invested in the exploration of ritualism and trance states in improvisation. They hold an M.F.A. in Electronic Music and Recording Media, and an M.A. in Music Composition from Mills College, and a B.A. in Visual Arts from Bennington College. They are head of A.C.R.E. Residency's sound department. Their practice is largely collaborative. They are the Technical Director of Driven Arts Collective (DAC), which recently completed the Dresher Ensemble Artist Residency with their projects CELSO: In Utero and CELSO: Digital Milk, a dance/theatre work with live music and interactive technologies. DAC has been awarded the ARCC Residency at Counterpulse where they are creating a new work in the CELSO series. With DAC, Kim directed/filmed the video work Quarant Time documenting the collectives rehearsal process during 2020 and assisted with filming of Z A G A. Previously, they did show programming and co-authored music & video elements for DAC's evening length prodution, << KHÔRA >>. They currently work at Art Institute of Chicago doing installing media artworks as part of the Audio Visual Services Team.
Emily Beisel is a Chicago based improvisor, curator and woodwind specialist. She is known for her visceral performances combining extended instrumental techniques with heavy amplification and timbral effects. Her work draws inspiration from noise music, math-core, free jazz, contemporary classical and doom metal. Emily is a member of the contemporary ensemble Fonema Consort premiering works of living composers including James Dillon, Richard Barrett and Julio Estrada. As a curator, Emily seeks to increase the visibility and involvement of women and nonbinary artists in the creative music community. To this end she founded the monthly Pleiades series based at Elastic Arts in Chicago. Emily holds her Master of Music degree from Northwestern University and is a member of the American Federation of Musicians Local 10-208.
Beisels solo bass clarinet performances offer an intimate experience of the interaction between her body and that of the instrument. A unique style of amplification magnifies the combined detail of voice and tube, tongue and reed, breath and keys. Her music moves in a sculptured flow between composed and improvised material that includes both extreme delicacy and powerful, distorted density.
