"Gerrit Hatcher is a Chicago-based tenor saxophonist, improviser, and composer. Born in Boston and raised in Normal, Illinois, Hatcher grew up studying trombone, and switched to tenor saxophone at 20 while attending the University of Illinois. Hatcher graduated from UIUC in 2013 and received a Masters in Arts and Politics at Sciences Po the following year. He moved to Chicago in 2015, and, inspired by Chicago's rich improvising music scene, soon began to make music with Chicago musicians, forging new improvising collaborations, and leading ensembles of his own.

Hatcher's own work typically engages with free jazz both as a set of experimental practices, and as an idiom with a history unto itself. He also participates across the diverse spectrum of experimental and improvised music being made in Chicago today. Gerrit has many active projects including his duo with Anton Hatwich, as well as a duo with Julian Kirshner, a solo saxophone practice, the improvising trio Devouring the Guilt with Eli Namay and Bill Harris, a trio with Mars Williams and Lia Kohl, and his organ quartet Refunction."

"Charlie Kirchen is a scholar, composer, improviser, and bassist based in NYC and Chicago. His scholarly work is centered on the history and theory of improvised/creative music, the processes by which certain musical idioms become valuable, the relationship between music's logical and sensuous aspects, and the Midwest. His creative work is focused on exploring a visceral free-improvised expression within the context of logically rigorous formal, melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic frameworks. He maintain an active touring and recording schedule with groups such as the Charlie Kirchen Quartet, Sfyria Trio, the Few, and Rooms."
