Bio: Montauk Project is an improvised percussion/woodwinds duo featuring Milwaukee-based musicians and educators Jake Polancich (drums/percussion/bassoon/guitar) and Ryan Meisel (saxophones, flutes/processors). The project was formed in late 2012 in an effort to explore extreme improvisational opportunities and original music that couldn’t be duplicated in a larger ensemble. Montauk Project continues to serve an artistic longing to react musically to an array of occurrences in our world...good, evil, and everything in between. With this project, the music goes where it needs to. There is an intentional transparency to Montauk Project compositions; allowing the music to breathe, morph, flex, and maneuver. Their latest album “Momentum” (October 2019) is a collaborative effort with dancers Katharina Abderholden and Elisabeth Roskopf.
Romex Duo is a Milwaukee-based chamber group devoted to the performance of new music for saxophone and percussion.
