About

Chicago band Twin Talk has been steadily gaining notoriety for their offbeat, melodic approach to creative improvised music. Drummer Andrew Green, saxophonist Dustin Laurenzi, and bassist/vocalist Katie Ernst have focused their creative energies on exploring collaborative musical communication. Much like the phenomenon of cryptophasia ("twin speak") in identical twins, the band shares an ever-expanding musical language that is deeply personal and highly connected.

The three musicians have an affinity for melody and nuance, but the fabled Chicago tradition of improvised music has had its affect on the band. Chicago’s legacy of creative improvisers has had a profound influence on the band's defiant risk-taking and spontaneity.

In case of rain, the event takes place inside the MCA's Kovler Atrium.
