Airplay is...

Airplay is more than a show, it's an institution. Join the Airplay gang every week as they open the flood gates and let the music pour in. Airplay specializes in live in-studio performances by the best and brightest. Search the performance database if you don't believe us. Three parts freaky and two parts fresh, Airplay licks it where most shows only lightly kiss.

Haptic Saturday, November 07, 2009
2nd Airplay performance from this defiant minimalist electronic trio formed in Chicago. Featuring Steven Hess (Pan American, Dropp Ensemble, On, Fessenden), Joseph Clayton Mills (Jonathan Chen, Dropp Ensemble), and Adam Sonderberg (Dropp Ensemble, Civil War) each playing an assortment of electronics, devices, and contact-microphoned junk, Haptic create thick, textured, environments of sound. This set also features Adam Sonderberg playing 'WNUR trashcan'. Haptic just released a CD on Entr'acte called Trebuchet that has a track recorded at WNUR during their first Airplay visit. Check out Haptic every Tuesday in November at the MCA for a free/all ages show and experience their installation piece Triptych (2009) exhibited there as well.
