Milwaukee based musicians Rob Collier and Ben Aguilar mark Chase Public as one of the venues for their geographically explorational and context inclusive, evolutionary composition Music in Transparent Layers: Collier and Aguilar will record each performance as they tour the midwest and then play the recordings at each subsequent show as they add a new layer live. Thus, every performance is a unique stage in the development of the piece over the course of 11 evenings in 11 separate venues.
Joining the travellers, performances by local percussionist Zach Larabee and synthesizer Andrew Eleban.
