Soledad Fatima Muñoz is an interdisciplinary artist born in Toronto, Canada and raised in Rancagua, Chile. Currently based in Chicago, her work seeks to explore the analogy between the ever-changing social spaces we inhabit, the inter-connectivity materialized in the woven structure and an embodied experience of sound. She holds a Diploma in Textile Arts from Capilano University, earned a BFA at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and is currently working towards completing her MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2014 she founded Genero, an audio project which focuses in the distribution and greater representation women and non-binary artists working in the sound realm, and is one of the head organizers of CURRENT “Feminist Electronic Art Symposium”. Soledad was the recipient of New Artist Society Full Merit Scholarship at School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The City of Vancouver Mayor’s Arts Award for Emerging Artist in Craft and Design, and The Emily Carr President’s Media Award – Installation/Interactive Media.
ZRL (Zachary Good, Ryan Packard and Lia Kohl) is a percussion/electronics, cello, and clarinet trio that focuses on consistency and stasis, and the nuances found within carefully crafted sonic textures and timbres. Their material is drawn from both free and structured improvisation, focusing on the balance point where their sound-worlds tangle and collide. They have performed around Chicago at venues such as Elastic Arts, High Concept Labs, Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. Their new self-titled album was released on No Index on May 17th, 2017.
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
