This past Wednesday at our Tone Cluster event at the High Noon Saloon, we presented live sets from Thomas Wincek (of All Tiny Creatures and Volcano Choir) and Sarah Krug, aka Samarah (a longtime producer who currently lives in Fond du Lac but spent many years playing and booking shows in Madison). Before they played, Wincek and Krug joined me and our live audience for a discussion about where their music has been headed over the past few years. Highlights of the conversation included how both guests feel the music landscape has changed in the years they’ve been playing, their distinctive uses of vocals in the electronic context, and a breakdown of their live setups, especially Wincek’s use of the Zip Disk. Give it a listen here.

The next edition of The Tone Cluster is on February 24 at the High Noon. Details announced soon!

At a time when Madison is going through a lot of change, we want Tone Madison to be something you can count on. You can rely on us to spotlight the artists, musicians, and ideas that make up the fabric of our city. You can rely on us to challenge the status quo with inventive, adversarial journalism, including our coverage of abortion rights, housing, and labor. 

 

But here's the thing: reader support is crucial our survival. We'll keep writing the articles you love (or love to hate) for as long as we can—but we need your help to keep our small, independent publication going.
