The Music Memory Project

How do we remember through music?

Two years ago a group of Chicago musician/composers took on the challenge of creating music based on intimate memories from their lives. The resulting compositions have been stewing in an archive since then but will be on display, along with images and writings about these memories, at the Hairpin on March 23rd.

The event will include gallery viewing as well as live performances by participating artists: Ronnie Malley, Rashida Phillips, Ami Saraiya, 80 Foots (Chris Schoen, Emmy Bean, and T-Roy Martin), and Joey Spilberg.

Additional performers performing memory-inspired songs: Anna Soltys, as well as Jenny and Robin Bienemann!!!

Doors will open at 7PM for viewing/listening, followed by live performances starting at 8PM.
