    Kimmel/Piet Duo & Collector

    Elastic Arts regulars Jeff Kimmel and Matt Piet kick tonight off with a new duo collaborations. For the second set, we present the touring band Collector - the collaborative project of Matt Blair, Jakob Heinemann and Devin Drobka. Having played together in separate contexts for several years, the three musicians first came together as a trio in November 2016. Since then, they have primarily worked in expansive, developing improvisations, with a focus on exploring electroacoustic sound, dynamic extremes, and drones. Above all, the trio has always prized close listening and a sensibility for self-expression in their music.
