{SET 1} 

 

Sample and Fold

Jim Schoenecker
Brandon Logic
Stephen Merola

Sample and Fold are champions of Mid-West Coast Synthesis. These three Milwaukee natives have the uncanny ability to transform a frozen Wisconsin room into warm, drippy womb of analog goodness that no one can escape. They will be presenting a brand new quadraphonic composition exclusively for this performance at Woodland Pattern.

Steve Nelson-Raney is a saxophonist and pianist who is active as a performer in jazz, contemporary classical music and free improvisation idioms.
