“The Wisdom To Know the Difference” is an exploration of control on both a sonic and a spiritual level. Vocals and acoustic drums processed, blended with lush textures, triggering other sonic events at varying degrees of randomness. A song-structured web of intended and unintended sonic consequences emerges, inspired by artists such as Mount Eerie, Björk, J Dilla, and Fiona Apple. An inquiry into the limits of control, the ease/suffering of clarity/confusion around those limits. The ever-shifting nature of those limits. An analogy in sound for these human predicaments.

Heart of the Ghost is an improvisational unit from the Baltimore/Washington area. Comprised of Jarrett Gilgore (Alto Saxophone), Luke Stewart (Double Bass) and Ian McColm (Drums), this group is the culmination of years of encircling orbits. Collectively encompassing a massive variety of interests and collaborators including James Brandon Lewis, Jaimie Branch, Tashi Dorji, and Dave Rempis. Themselves known players in the circles of improvised music, these three find common ground within their individual vocabularies: an aim to deconstruct and reshape canonized creative tropes into a new & stunning language.

Inspired by the Serenity Prayer, Matthew Daher‘s “The Wisdom To Know the Difference” is an exploration of control on both a sonic and a spiritual level. Vocals and acoustic drums processed, blended with lush textures, triggering other sonic events at varying degrees of randomness. A song-structured web of intended and unintended sonic consequences emerges, inspired by artists such as Mount Eerie, Björk, J Dilla, and Fiona Apple. An inquiry into the limits of control, the ease/suffering of clarity/confusion around those limits. The ever-shifting nature of those limits. An analogy in sound for these human predicaments.”

[MIIIIM] is a musical project based in the heart of the former (and future) glacial chasm that is Ohio. This project seeks to delicately synthesize an array of motifs: symmetry, reggae sets, radical politics, harmonic and geometric progressions, and infinity, among others. The music consists largely of long-forgotten treasures, hidden agendas, minutiae, happy accidents, and psychedelia, very often evoking a sense of vague familiarity–perhaps even nostalgia–despite its overtly alien topography. [MIIIIM] hopes that all is well.

An array of color and texture with space for exploration, with chamber like delivery, with sporadic bursts tempered by moments of repose with an introspective, even soundtrack like trajectory. Whispers of the Art Ensemble of Chicago.

DJ ALLI

Digital and vinyl DJ/producer

She specializes in blending ‘vintage’ soul with ‘current’ dance and drum tracks.

Alli has enjoyed playing others’ and self produced mixes and beats. She got her start DJing in Louisville in 2014 with friends who ran “Highlands Beat Club.” Many of the producers who came to that night were able to create platforms to gig on their own.

She enjoyed sampling sounds and melodies from 45s and using them to remix or recreate existing and original concepts. She used the term ‘sound collaging’ as a move away from commercial/mainstream DJing, to explore layering and mixing in a self-created project called CZKINVA (chicky nova).

In 2015 DJ Alli started bringing DJs into Louisville with Trombone Shorty at the Mercury Ballroom. Since then she has shared nights with local and traveling bands (“Sidewalk Chalk,” “Church Booty,” “In Lightning,” “Jameron,” “Jenna Dean”) and has had the pleasure of performing as a solo DJ at Headliners, for wedding receptions, proms, brunches and other private events.

Alli’s love of music keeps her motivated towards new sound projects and keeps her current in an ever-changing soundscape!
