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.
