Luke Gullickson is a composer, pianist, and guitarist whose aesthetic embraces classical and new concert music, jazz and improvisation, and post-rock acoustic music. He writes concert music under his own name, releases hybrid-genre instrumental albums as Lake of Five Oceans, and plays and records indie-folk music as Golconda. In all categories, he takes inspiration from the interpersonal energy of informal music-making, as well as travel, the outdoors, and ideas of place. A native Iowan, Luke studied at Illinois Wesleyan, the University of Texas at Austin, and the Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris. He is the co-founder of the infamous Grant Wallace Band, and has been a resident artist at the Banff Centre for the Arts and Joshua Tree National Park.
Joining Gullickson on the bill is Andrew Weathers, a composer, improviser, and musical organizer. Originally from North Carolina, he recently relocated to Littlefield, Texas, by way of California. Weathers regularly performs and records solo, along with such bands Talk More, Common Eider, What Does the Scanner See, and Real Life Rock & Roll. He has collaborated or studied with Pauline Oliveros, Fred Frith, Roscoe Mitchell, Tatsuya Nakatani, Eugene Chadbourne and others. His most recent release, Build a Mountain Where Our Bodies Fall, is effervescent and ethereal, its soundscapes evoking grassroots American anthems. While maintaining a busy performing schedule, Weathers also runs Full Spectrum Records and works as a freelance audio engineer.
