A show with four up-and-coming artists featured in Creative Loafing's Music Issue.
A LEON CRAFT
Admission includes a limited-edition VINYL compilation of the artists playing the show and in the Music Issue, sponsored by Creative Loafing and Criminal Records, plus an MP3 download with even more artists.
Bassoonists Rachael Elliott (Clogs) and Lynn Hileman (founder of AV Space) perform avant-garde chamber music for 2 bassoons, with music by Dutch composers Louis Andriessen and Chiel Meijering, Russian Sofia Gubaidulina and American Michael Daugherty, along with two short solo pieces by American composers Bobby McFerrin and Dennis DeSantis.
Tuple's repertoire is virtuosic and expansive, and showcases the flexibility and dynamic array of sonorities which two bassoons can create. Sample their music here:
"Listen to it. I don't know; I will never know whether it is a diamond or a coin"

Jae is a Norway-based artist. Jæ's melancholy indie-folk centers around her songwriting; warm, flowing songs and eerie, far lines. Her texts
revolve around travellings, cultures and relations, asking both personal and general contemporary questions.
Found Objects: Arianna Sykes purrs over effortlessly loose acoustic jams; accompanied by a sparse backing band consisting mainly of one Melissa Lonely(of the Kiwis) and other superstars of the New Weird South. Think Hunky Dory era Bowie as filtered through Neil Young's "Tonight's the Night" album and you're close. The room is just as much an instrument as the guitar.
Named as 2008's 'Portuguese Jazz Record of the Year' by leading Portuguese jazz magazine, Jazz.PT. The Humanization 4tet is led by Lisbon guitarist Luis Lopes & features tenor saxophonist Rodrigo Amado, as well as Dallas, TX brothers, Aaron Gonzalez on bass and Stefan Gonzalez on drums.
"A blindfold test might place this music somewhere inside today's Chicago sound. Lopes' writing and his quartet could almost be mistaken for a Jeff Parker-meets-Ken Vandermark, as the tenor saxophone/guitar interaction of Rodrigo Amado and Lopes orients you into the free/composed styles heard in the windy city of jazz. The opening "Cristadingo" verifies this with a muscular workout, Amado blowing heavy notes over Lopes' sinewy playing. The saxophonist has been gaining quite a reputation for his work in the Lisbon Improvisation Players and with players like Ken Filiano, Steve Swell, Joe Giardullo and Paal Nilssen-Love."
