Chris Schlarb will join me in the second installment of Atlas Sets, with an initial meeting on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, at Hole Mole.

I first met Chris in 2000 when I shared a gig with his band Create! as part of an experimental music series at Sacred Grounds coffeehouse in San Pedro. Chris brought me on to jam with Scott Cornish and Andrew Pompey for his series, Notice, at Fendi’s Cafe in Long Beach. I later curated I Heart Lung in, and Chris used some of my sounds for his Twilight & Ghost Stories album on Asthmatic Kitty. I’ve followed his work closely (I curated a live performance of his soundtrack for the Nightsky videogame for the 2009 Slow Sound festival), and we’ve been friends for a while, but have never directly collaborated until now.

I’m looking forward to what I’m sure will be a wide-ranging discussion of music, practice, and inspiration.

More to follow.
