TheBirdsAtThisHour Pt. 2
TheBirdsAtThisHour is 18andCounting’s brick of songs and soundscapes unfolded in a series of 3 events in autumn, 2016
Pt. 2 is a solo illustration exhibition centered around the ominous textures & text created in both 18aC’s sound and visual studios. Using his developed visual lexicon to arrange patterns with narrative and musical possibilities, this is an ongoing onslaught against popular culture, the flaws of it’s fans and the instilled behaviors of artistry meets society.
Inspired by police in helicopters, speeding sirens, alley cat fights, romantic transitions, brick crumbs, dawn, disgust, the illusion of love, the actual marriage of delicate and rugged, hermits, smoke and mold.
The intimate Millitzer Gallery is a homecoming of sorts. It will be Chisholm’s first solo art show on the South Side since 2013.
Free to the public – showing til Nov 27

Stemming from late night improv sessions and sonic experiments, TheBirdsAtThisHour is a brooding, paranoia induced, sultry, culmination of tracks collaged from collaborative and isolated recordings at Chisholm’s home studio. Built from the mutated moments of analog gear, acoustic instruments, drum machines, electronic tinged vocals, guest players and ghosts in the air.
Driven by session with Sarah Vie, Patrick Boland, Barret Crosby, Dolor, Biggie Stardust, Mike Herr, Kullus, Loose Screwz, Brennan England, Blk Bdy Heat and Ice
Not an album, just a chunk 2016’s activity and experiments.
