November 9 from 8:00pm - 11:00pm
On The Ground is a site-specific, electro acoustic solo performance developed by Chicago based sound artist, percussionist, and composer Tim Daisy.
Utilizing an ever expanding arsenal of both traditional and non traditional instruments including: radios, turntables, gongs, chains, bells, a snare drum, brushes, scrap metal, circular saw blades, sticks, and alarm clocks; OTG explores the art of sound collage in a solo improvisational context, multi layered free improvisation, with all of the instruments and objects spread out and assembled on the floor.
OTG is a site specific work. Taking location into account, the set up for the performance changes depending on the size and layout of of the work space. Whether performed indoors or outdoors, in a large auditorium or a small living room, the bottom of a swimming pool or on top of a tall building, every OTG performance is integrated into and affected by the environment that it presents itself in. The architecture of the space influences the architecture of the improvising.
Multidisciplinary in scope, OTG incorporates acoustic and electronic sound, physical movement, and visual elements throughout every performance. Combining the use of traditional and nontraditional instruments, both acoustic and electronic, with the spatial considerations of the performance environment, OTG presents a creative and unique atmosphere for the art of solo improvisation. Adding Tim Daisy’s 15 + years as a percussionist and sound artist working in a solo context as well as in various groups connected to the international experimental music scene, OTG presents a fresh perspective on contemporary sound art.
HERO OF WARCHESTER (ANNA WEBBER, NATHANIEL MORGAN, LIZ KOSACK)

They specialize in long-form, slow-moving improv. They are on tour in November 2015 to celebrate the release of a self-titled cassette on Prom Night Records.
