Jake Wark, Matt Murphy, and Bill Harris began collaborating as Bowlcut in 2015 and have since developed their own rapport that emphasizes the group over the self. Ethereal synthesizer and modified electronics supplement their approach to the saxophone/guitar/drum format. Alternately atmospheric, driving, and brutal, Bowlcut's upcoming release on Amalgam finds the trio working its way through a set of collective improvisations and variable structures.
Tim Daisy & Josh Berman
Chicago–based drummer, marimbist and composer Tim Daisy has worked in the fields of improvised and composed music since 1997. He has performed, recorded, and toured with many acclaimed musicians and ensembles from both the North American and European improvised music scenes including: Mars Williams, Ken Vandermark, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Elisabeth Harnik, Dave Rempis, James Falzone, Russ Johnson, Havard Wiik, Mikolaj Trzaska, Clayton Thomas, Per Ake Holmlander, Steve Swell, Aram Shelton, Michael Zerang, Kyle Bruckmann, and Katherine Young.

Tim has performed and recorded original music for modern dance, film, and improvised music ensembles of various configurations. He also owns and operates Relay Records, documenting much of the creative work he has been involved with in Chicago and abroad since 2011. Tim co-curates the weekly OPTION series at Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago. The programming explores contemporary perspectives on improvisation and composition in a ‘salon’ format, enabling local, national, and international artists to publicly discuss their practice and ideas as well as perform.

For more than fifteen years, cornetist, improviser, composer and music presenter Josh Berman has been an essential contributor to Chicago's active improvised music scene. His work encompasses both developing opportunities and forums for presenting improvised music - as co-founder of the critically acclaimed Umbrella Music Group and performing in a variety of highly collaborative formats - including as bandleader of his own groups, Josh Berman's Old Idea and Josh Berman and His Gang, Josh Berman Trio and as co-leader of the Chicago Luzern Exchange. Berman has been named regularly since 2010 in the annual Down Beat Magazine's Critic's Poll as a"Rising Star". In addition to his work as bandleader, Berman has performed and recorded with some of the most internationally respected musicians in jazz and improvised music. He has toured the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.
