AIRMW presents the Sudden Impact Series

Live from Hairpin Arts Center

Tatsu Aoki brings together a new series to facilitate catalyst events, providing a substratum for Chicago’s musical artists to explore and musically experiment. July 2021 guest artist will feature Gleaming Shard.

Gleaming Shard is inspired by the harmonies of Earth’s timeless processes. The planet’s magnetosphere hums with no end, no beginning. Countless solar particles travel epic distances to collide with this magnetic atmosphere. The ionizing photons sound like waves of shattered glass falling into a vast ocean.
The duo was formed during the madness of pandemic isolation. While Covid-19 ravaged the terrestrial realm, the band members dreamed of the wonders of unfathomable space. Sudden Impact will be their first performance on the planet Earth.
Da Wei Wang is a guitar hawk of the Chicago avant-rock scene. He plays in the legendary gospel-punk band, Ono. He applies extended techniques and tools on his guitar to conjure dense soundscapes. His solo album, Liquid Metal Core, was released by AIRMW in 2021.
Jerome Bryerton has been playing the drum set since 1988. Since 1996, he has primarily played experimental music. He chooses an aural landscape which includes bowed cymbals and drum set prepared with cymbals, gongs, shakers and wood blocks. He’s performed with many notable free improvisers such as Wolfgang Fuchs, Frank Gratkowski, Damon Smith, Cecil Taylor, Colin Stetson, Jeb Bishop, Jack Wright, Dominic Duvall and Joe McPhee.
