Anna Soltys and the Familiar

 

Anna Soltys and the Familiar is a modern folk rock band with an entrancing new sound.  Anna is originally from Poland, spending her childhood there as well as Paris before heading to her self-proclaimed home, Chicago.  Her music is lyrical and poetic, filling the heart with an awareness of self that we all could use a little of.  Her unique vocal style and equally original music arrangements melt together into a fresh and soothing kind of unfamiliar "familiar."  Music that explores and embodies elements of pain, strength, honesty and sorrow.  From start to finish, lyrically driven simple melodies leave you with a sense of colorful melancholy.

Pastel Fractal

 

Pastel Fractal is a project by artist Alexander DeGraaf that combines music and installation sculpture. The largest sculptures created and installed are architectural mock-ups and structural experiments with re-appropriated materials. On a smaller scale, platforms, tables, stands, and cases for the instruments and devices in his electronic music setup, which act as functional art used at every performance. The materials used to construct these sculptures are almost exclusively aluminum walkers and dated wall-hanging art of the pastel motif. In many works, motorized robotic components of the sculpture make sounds of their own that are synced with instruments by means of MIDI sequencing and decoding.

3:15-3:45pm
