I organized an event here in the Oak Park/Chicago area called Elements: Electronic Improv Series. The show happened on June 4th, but we decided to record and release the show because we were all so stoked with how it went.
There were 6 electronic musicians invited to improvise in 3 duo sets, some of which had never met before. It featured a variety of instruments and approaches, from laptop and Nord Modular, to Buchla, Serge, eurorack and Ciat-Londbarde instruments.
Each duo ended up improvising for about 25 minutes, and the sets are documented here:
Featured were myself (Donny Mahlmeister), Jim Schoenecker, Todd Mattei, Ryan Duncan, Jamie Levinson and Jay Mollerskov.
We are hopefully doing this again, somewhere in the Chicago area. Get in touch if you’d like to be a part of it in the future!
