Formations is a monthly music series dedicated to fostering the growth of new and improvised music in Milwaukee, WI.
Set 1: Armillaria
Eli Smith and Lonnie Martin - Eli and Lonnie started playing freely improvised music together around the middle of 2019, slowly accumulating instruments (autoharp, experimentally tuned acoustic guitars, found objects, cello, etc) and developing ways of playing with and responding to each other. The nature of their music is continually in flux and hard to define, but generally orbits between warped psych-folk implosions, ethereal vocal dialogues, colorific / atonal diffusions, and droning ambient sounds. The duo enjoys exploring the raw directness of experience that free improvisation makes possible, and their sonic explorations end up being simultaneously playful, explorative, and cathartic.
Set 2: Tony Catania Trio
Tony Catania - tenor sax
Barry Clark - bass
Devin Drobka - bass
