Home Radiation in Chicago


Jeff Kolar, Eric Leonardson and I are playing Friday May 15, 2015 in Chicago, at the Defibrillator Gallery
1463 West Chicago Ave,  Chicago IL 60642  19:00

Two of my favourite people to play with and collaborate with! Here’s what we’re up to:

Home Radiation
Performing with radiophonic instruments, unique homemade electronics, micro-watt transmitters, and re-purposed objects, Anna Friz, Jeff Kolar and Eric Leonardson create intimate atmospheres traversing acoustic and electrode-magnetic space. Together their work can be characterized as a mindful collaboration with vibrational surfaces and unstable circuits; and with subtle treatments of potentially noisy, often lo-fi materials from which highly detailed landscapes emerge. Though all three artists have worked with one another in various constellations in Chicago and internationally, this concert is their premiere outing as a trio.

In addition to Eric’s Springboard instrument, Jeff’s panoply of open circuit micro-transmitters, and my little table full of feedback oddities, I’ll be bringing along an old friend to make some noise:


no glitter, just the stars

I have the great pleasure of playing together with Maja Osojnik this weekend in Vienna. She’s a vibrant performer and composer who uses a broad palette of instruments electronic and acoustic, including her voice.IMG_0052

We’ll be playing solo sets, and a set together, using a pile of electronics, instruments, voices, radio, cassettes, and all. My set will be focused on my current favourite sample, the zero hour….

We played together on Art’s Birthday (January 17, 2014) in a translocal exchange over the interwebs between Vienna-Ljubljana, produced by ORF Kunstradio and radioCONA, which you can listen to here.
