An evening of experimental music by 3 musicians who push their acoustic instruments way beyond normal expectations. Drums become choruses, strings become woodwinds and the human voice becomes an orchestra in the blink of an eye.

Sean Hamilton is a percussionist from Tampa, FL who blends virtuosic classical styles, free improvisation, electroacoustic music, new music, and experimental music to push the limits of the idea of "percussionist". His solo music can be heard on his album LOCI, and he has collaborated with artists such as VERB Ballets, New Orleans Airlift, Lindsey Kelley Dance, Death Posture, Eli Blasko, Tatsuya Nakatani, Jacqui Dugal, Mbulelo Ndabeni, and Claire Lefevre.

Klimchak lives at the intersection of chaos and order. His composer/percussionist side builds elaborate structures of interlocking melody & rhythm. Then his performer side takes over and obliterates those structures with bursts of noise, random drones and slabs of spontaneous improvised sound. Expect to see some combination of home built instruments, computerized sound design and a mess of drums, flutes and maybe a theremin.

Killick Hinds is an improvising guitarist, composer, and writer living in Athens, Georgia. He plays a variety of unusual stringed instruments with a comprehensive approach to genres known and as-yet-unlabeled.
