Institute 193 Sound + WRFL 88.1FM presents Dave Rempis/Tyler Damon Duo, Friday, May 26th, 7PM at 215 N Limestone

This powerful duo encapsulates the hard-working Chicago improvised music scene in a nutshell.  Tyler Damon's extensive vocabulary behind the kit has positioned him as an important figure in the American underground.  Whether he’s working with improvised stalwarts like Mars Williams and Joshua Abrams, or indie acts like Eli Winter, Circuit Des Yeux, and guitarist Sarah Louise, he remains deeply invested in spontaneous playing. Rempis' ubiquity matches his prowess — in addition to longstanding bands like Rempis Percussion Quartet, Ballister, and Rempis/Abrams/Ra, he’s also performed and recorded with the likes of Joe McPhee, Peter Brötzmann, Tomeka Reid, Joshua Abrams, Jaimie Branch, Chris Corsano and Nate Wooley. The pair comprise two thirds of the trio Kuzu alongside guitarist Tashi Dorji, and have released albums on Astral Spirits and Rempis' own Aerophonic imprint.  Their relationship deepened even further over the course of the pandemic, when these Chicago neighbors hosted a weekly duo concert in a park near both of their homes on Friday afternoons through the warmer months.  This regular and rare performance opportunity in that time, usually featuring a different guest each week, furthered their already simpatico musical relationship in a profound way.
