This first meeting of two like-minded experimentalists took place in August of 2022, when New York-based violinist Gabby Fluke-Mogul made their first visit to Chicago to explore the improvised music scene there. The focal point of that visit was a solo performance on the Pleiades Series at Elastic Arts organized by Emily Beisel. But as a second “get-to-know-ya” opportunity, Beisel and percussionist Bill Harris also organized a night of mixed groupings at the Beat Kitchen, a rock bar mostly known in the improvised music scene as the home of the longstanding Monday night residency by Extraordinary Popular Delusions. For one of those sets, Fluke-Mogul met up with Chicago mainstay Dave Rempis on saxophones.

As many fans of the music will recognize, there can be something incredibly special about first-time encounters, and this was one of those sets. Exploring spiky counterpoints, turn-on-a-dime dynamics, and sputtering articulations, these two found an extraordinary common ground in the music. This limited release for Catalytic Sound supporters provides a quick glance into what will hopefully lead to more collaborations down the road!
