Edible Audible Picnic, the poly-rhythmic music series returns to Millennium Park at noon this summer, featuring DJs and live bands as diverse and entrancing as the electronic genre in which they play. Presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Millennium Park, this free series expands to include 16 concerts on Mondays and select Saturdays at noon, beginning June 7 through September 4, 2010.
Solvent is Jason Amm, a Toronto based, robot-music composer, with an analog synthesizer fetish. He is a co-founder of Suction Records and one of the shining stars on the acclaimed Ghostly International label. Solvent has created his own unique version of electro-pop music and his latest full-length Subject to Shift is a sterling example of what happens when classic pop songwriting meets analogue circuitry.
