About the Music!
- Rachel Condry — clarinet
- Gretchen Jude — voice
- Jakob Pek — guitar
- Jennifer Wilsey — percussion
Gestaltish is a Bay Area ensemble that explores improvised music in both playful and methodical ways with a surprising array of results. The members of the ensemble have diverse musical backgrounds and met while working with Fred Frith in the Mills College Improvisation ensemble. Since 2012, they have been shaping and exploring sounds to create evocative yet open-ended musical experiences. Using game structures as temporal architectures in which to play, Gestaltish deeply listen to each other and their surroundings, encapsulating sonic moments and reinvigorating the notion of free improvisation with unexpected instrumentation and intuitions.
