Sonnenzimmer In-Progress Prints

Here's a sneak peek at some in-progress prints from our pals at Sonnenzimmer. Their work will be up at saki for the month of May. Their show is an amazing combination of screen printing, music, collaboration and will be a really special opening. Read more about their collaboration and process after the jump. and RSVP on Facebook!

saki is so excited to present the release of Sonnenzimmer's process-based music publication Free Jazz Bitmaps Vol. 1. The night will include live performances and an exhibition of large-scale scores based on the album, created by the musicians involved in the recording and Sonnenzimmer (Nadine Nakanishi & Nick Butcher). The exhibit will run through the month of May.

Free Jazz Bitmaps Vol. 1 (a collaborative release with Hometapes) consists of 6 original songs by Nick Butcher and reinterpretations of those songs by local jazz musicians Jason Adasiewicz, Tim Daisy, Keefe Jackson, Mike Reed, Jason Roebke, Jason Stein. The musicians involved in the record have created musical notations or scores of their interpretations, which Nadine & Nick have turned into large-scale screen prints with artistic additions of their own. 

Nick Butcher (Sonnenzimmer) will start off the musical set of the night with a brief introduction and will be followed by group led by Katherine Young. Young, along with Jenna Lyle and Joann Cho, will perform music based on the scores created by Sonnenzimmer and the musicians and involved in Free Jazz Bitmaps Vol. 1. Katherine Young is a composer and bassoonist who creates acoustic and electro-acoustic music that uses curious timbres and kinetic structures to explore suspended time. 

Sonnenzimmer's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, with a recent exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and an exhibit in Thessaloniki, Greece. Their work has been published in books by Gestalten, Princeton Architectural Pres, Gingko Press, The Pepin Press, and Rockport Publishers.
