Derek Worthington & Jon Taylor (Says Things) / Pat Reinholz

Says Things (MI) is the electroacoustic duo of longtime collaborators Derek Worthington and Jon Taylor. Over the years they have developed a deep rapport and a unique improvisational language focusing on collaborative development, avoiding a 'soloist vs. accompanist' mindset. Says Things' music draws inspiration from experimental jazz, tape music, glitch, and Americana, processing those influences into a new and personal sound.

Pat Reinholz, (MKE) cellist, composer, educator. Combines traditional and extended cello technique with electronics, and mixes compositions with free improvisation into a powerful blend of churning, soaring sound.

Teiku (presented by Present Music/RAA)

Teiku (which means “unanswered question”), to document, perform, and breathe new life into these beautiful old melodies. Teiku sets these melodies in a creative music context, balancing carefully-set parameters and free improvisation. The excitement of improvisation lies in its uncertainty and potential for infinite possibilities, and the name itself refers to the collective feeling of discovery that improvising musicians know well: creating cohesive textural environments in real time that are felt so viscerally but cannot be expressed with words.
