Noise Bias is an all-female contemporary ensemble exclusively showcasing the work of women composers. Existing as a collective, the women of Noise Bias share the common goal of creating and sustaining an environment where women are in positions of creative power and musical decision-making. Their goal is to curate new music performances that directly confront and challenge the gender disparity within the Chicago new music scene.
Last King of Poland:
Last King of Poland (Tomasz Ryszard Jurczak) is a polish noise artist from Chicago who has for the last years traveled the world, touring Japan and the United States extensively. he has released ten cassettes on different labels, the newest being an improvisational collaboration with Japanese noise artist go, out on 1980 records.
His whole creation in itself is an identity crisis, between two different worlds. Back and forth between American brashness and Polish chivalry which he brings out with loops and samples of waves and everyday life. His performance is unique. muted, he would look like a vivid story teller, passionately explaining his travels through outer space with sadness in his heart.
