*AND is a multi-city, multi-country project featuring the collaborative work of Chicago artists/teams of artists and their cohorts in other cities. We asked them to explore what it means to be a collaborative entity and how they might make something specific to the recorded medium. Other than that, it was basically just... "Do whatever you want, guys...like...whatever...we'll record it...or you can.....seriously..." It felt nice to say. And the results are even nicer to hear. Some people traveled, some Skyped, some maxed out a Google Drive sharing recordings, and everyone blew our minds.
