Marvin Tate is an inter-disciplinary artist and a staple in the Chicago visual, poetry/performance-Indie and improvised Jazz scene. Born on the city’s westside, in the North-Lawndale neighborhood. Tate is known in circles, as an outré soul-man and poet, combining literary waxing’s over raw social issues and improvisation. As recently stated by music journalist, Peter Margasack, “Tate toggles between quasi- crooning, soulful balladeering, forceful hectoring, and guttural chanting; no matter which direction he takes, the results are riveting and operatic”.  His voice can be heard on the most recent recording of jazz-drummer, Mike reed’s “Flesh and Bone” (428 Records) 2017 and collaborations with sound-artist, Joseph C. Mills "The Process", 2015. And as a self-taught visual artist, Tate’s sculptures and eyeglass case dioramas have been collected by various collectors, exhibited in galleries and displayed, most recently at the architectural department at SAIC.

Gather is an experimental music series bringing musicians from different scenes, backgrounds, practices, disciplines, and communities together for connection and artistic exchange. We curate this series with our attention toward introducing musicians who may not otherwise cross paths and whose works dialogue in compelling ways. By doing so, we hope to leave potential for collaboration and familiarity amongst different experimental music forms in Chicago. Gather is curated by Allen Moore, Nick Meryhew, and Rebecca Himelstein
