Join us at Bar Laika on Wednesday, November 9 at 8pm for the nineteenth edition of Satellite, featuring live music performances by Lester St. Louis and Jason Nazary, with visuals and voice by Kim Alpert. This event is in memory of trumpeter and composer Jaimie Branch (1983-2022), a dear friend who performed at Bar Laika twice and who was part of Amateur Psychology, an album by Joe Jeffers released by Satellite in 2019. 

Lester St. Louis is a New York-born and -based cellist, composer, improviser, sound designer, and curator. His works are rooted in dynamic environments of improvisation both sonically and socially. St. Louis began playing the cello at age sixteen and quickly learned that he had perfect pitch. Encouraged by his high school orchestra teacher, he dove into the cello with energy and respect. St. Louis has since had an extensive career; touring around the world and collaborating with artists such as Jaimie Branch, as part of the band Fly or Die, Chris Williams (under the moniker HxH), Edi Kwon, Dre A. Hočevar, Charmaine Lee, Isabel Crespo Pardo, Emeka Okereke, TAK Ensemble, The International Contemporary Ensemble, Random International, Superblue, Terrence Nance, Found Sound Nation, Amirtha Kidambi, and many more. As a composer, St. Louis has been commissioned by artists such as the JACK Quartet, RAGE THORMBONES, Jennifer Koh, String Noise, and Ghost Ensemble. 

Jason Nazary is a drummer, producer, and composer from Atlanta, based in Brooklyn. His fascination with the intersection of acoustic and electronic music manifests in his use of the drums as a trigger and control source for a chaotic collection of synthesizers and sequencers. Over the course of four solo records and numerous releases with an ever growing list of collaborators, Nazary has cultivated a vocabulary drawing as much from beat driven electronic music as from free improvised music and everything in between. A few ensembles Nazary has co-led over the years include Anteloper, an improvised modular beat shredding duo with Jaimie Branch; Clebs, the dystopian electro noise duo with singer Emilie Weibel; Bear In Heaven, a psychedelic synth heavy indie rock band; and Little Women, a noise meets free jazz soul quartet.

Kim Alpert combines analog and digital technologies, movement, music, and interactivity to create sculptural and performance-based video systems. Alpert’s practice centers on humanism with inquisitions into psychology and spiritualit, understanding and translating the impact of visual and sonic languages into meaning-making. Alpert is an active member of the arts community and serves on the board of Experimental Sound Studio in Chicago and Digital Arts Resource Center in Ottawa, Canada.

Satellite is a monthly experimental music series curated by Sanna Almajedi.
