Shows

Sunday, March 10th
UNDERWEAR- The legend from New Haven, CT makes his first Milwaukee appearance. Crooning R&B and soul run through the gauntlet of broken gear and compositional oddities. Every show teeters on the edge of failure in the most exciting way possible. https://ftamproductions.bandcamp.com/album/the-crusher

PLEASURE THIEF- Dark R&B rituals for the mystical anti-capitalists out there. From Cat of NO/NO. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfazXHTvrJ4

TAYLOR CAMPBELL- Smooth jazz and soul jams for the clinically depressed. Straddling the border between ecstasy and a full on collapse of social functions. Member of Suffer Head, One More Final I Need You. https://taylor.bandcamp.com/album/lovers-again

Friday, April 26th
PEDESTRIAN DEPOSIT- Reverse tension noise composition; existing somewhere between electroacoustic music, sound collage, and pure harsh noise, with elements of nearly every style of experimental music in-between. Absolutely one of the most stunning live performance groups out there. On tour from LA. Do not miss. https://pedestriandeposit.bandcamp.com/album/the-architector

PETER J. WOODS- Theatrical harsh noise. Debuting new work at this show. https://peterjwoods.bandcamp.com/album/today-is-horrible

KINGSTON FAMILY SINGERS- Audio visual weirdness from Belleville, IL. Ever evolving and always surprising. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=We8qQWO9V04

The 2019 Experimental Education Series

The 2018 Experimental Education Series is a brand new music series presented by FTAM Productions, Present Music, Brinn Labs, and the UW-Madison Network Fellowship. The four performances, spread out across 2018 but all happening at the Jazz Gallery Center for the Arts, will have two big goals: educate and amplify.

In regards to education, a workshop or lecture will accompany all four performances earlier in the day. These events will provide audience members with a glimpse into both the process of the featured performer and what these performers value and look for in experimental music. This focus will allow those new to experimental music to become acquainted with this often opaque genre and also give those seasoned listeners a chance to dig deeper into these fantastic artists’ work.

As for amplification, the programming for EES specifically aims to amplify the voices of female artists in experimental music. In an attempt to battle (in some small part) the false notion that experimental music, and noise in particular, is nothing but a boys club, all of the featured performers are either women or groups featuring women. And they also happen to be some of the best artists working in any genre, so there’s also that.
