A Quarterly Music Series
With Tony Buck and Damon Locks
Bricolage is a performance series that partners artists from the creative capitals of Berlin and Chicago in an exploration of collaborative work in the COVID era.
Co-curated by experimental musicians Magda Mayas and Dave Rempis, the series attempts to create new artistic partnerships, as well as new models for remote collaboration in this unprecedented time. Bricolage encourages artists to work creatively with the technological means available, and their limitations, to create new models that may have use and impact even after this era.
Bricolage will be produced and broadcast by venue partners in each city, Elastic Arts
