To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Illusion of Safety, Lampo presents solo work from Chicagoan Dan Burke. He premieres Time Remaining and a new composition written for this rare local performance.
Since 1983 Illusion Of Safety has been the ongoing project of Dan Burke (b.1960, Chicago, Ill.), working alone and with various collaborators. IOS’ work has varied over the years—at different times called ambient, post-industrial, electroacoustic, noise, sound collage, improvisation and power electronics—never settling on any given style or method.
Several of Chicago’s leading musicians have collaborated with Burke. The earliest version of the group included Cheer-Accident’s Thymme Jones; in 1988 Jim O’Rourke began an affiliation that lasted five years. Since then the project has included people like Kevin Drumm, Kurt Griesch, Ben Vida, Jeb Bishop and Darrin Gray.
