On Friday, May 24th, Firehouse 12 is pleased to present the collaborative trio Memorize the Sky featuring reedist Matt Bauder, bassist Zach Wallace, and percussionist Aaron Siegel. Formed in Ann Arbor, MI in the late 1990s, Memorize the Sky has over a decade of music behind them. They are known for their delicate, nuanced approach to improvisation where textures, colors, and melodies gradually emerge and transform.

Memorize the Sky "sounds like they've been playing together for over a decade, their improvisations modestly and unfussily executed...[their music is] natural and straightforward" (Adam Strohm, Dusted). The "trio's crystalline drones and patient, chamberlike interplay offer a subtle alternative to turbulent free jazz" (Time Out New York). Their 2007 self-titled release was called "an allusive, relentlessly surprising disc" (Phillip Clark, The Wire).

Memorize the Sky is informed by the diverse musical experiences of its members, including performances and recordings with rock band His Name is Alive, Neil Michael Hagerty, Tara Jane O'Neil, Saturday Looks Good to Me, and Low, and avant-garde luminaries Anthony Braxton, Jim O'Rourke, Tony Conrad and Alvin Lucier. They have also collaborated with the best of the Chicago, New York, and Boston improvised music communities including Fred-Lonberg-Holm, Greg Davis, Josh Abrams, Ken Vandermark, Jim Baker, Jeb Bishop, Rob Mazurek, Greg Kelly Sean Meehan Phil Minton, Jason Roebke, and Scott Rosenberg. As a long-lived, deeply collaborative endeavor, Memorize the Sky holds a special place among Bauder, Wallace and Siegel's many musical projects.
