In the spirit of direct and concrete action following the November election, Noise Bias and Mortar are collaborating to raise money in support of Planned Parenthood, which will continue to be under intense political scrutiny in the coming months. Please join us on December 13th at 8:30PM at Narloch Piano Studio. $10 suggested donation.

Noise Bias is a new music ensemble consisting exclusively of female-identified musicians and artists who collaborate to perform works by female-identified composers. The women of Noise Bias share a common goal of creating and sustaining an environment where women are in positions of creative power and musical decision-making.

Chris Shuttleworth's most recent compositional endeavor "Mortar" merges musicians from widely varying musical backgrounds into an ensemble that fuses seemingly incongrous music traditions. "Mortar" subverts expectations of chamber brass playing by frequently utilizing a very reserved, personal brass sound in conjunction with low strings and electric guitar. The result is a combination of composed and improvised elements that strives to be both deeply intriguing and entirely approachable.
