    Clarinetist Kristina Teuschler explores a complicated relationship to classical music through her project, “Mock Audition”. Trained in conservatory to perform orchestral music, she has made a career performing in prominent New York ensembles such as the West Point Band, Orchestra of St. Luke’s and International Contemporary Ensemble, as well as in collaborating and recording with many Brooklyn independent artists and bands. As a queer woman with blended identities (Jamaican, Brazilian, Austrian), Kristina has found the need to grapple with the classist and white supremacist structures that uphold Western classical music as ‘high art’ by recontextualizing the music. She creates these sound worlds with manipulated samples, clarinet improvisations with live electronic processing, a satirical DJ set, and song.

    Andy Clausen is a Brooklyn-based trombonist, composer, arranger, and educator. He is a founding member of genre-bending brass quartet The Westerlies, a frequent collaborator with artists including Fleet Foxes, Aoife O’Donovan, Haley Heynderickx, Conrad Tao, Nico Muhly, and Dave Douglas, and a prolific composer for visual media, audio storytelling, and concert music. 2024 marks the debut of Andy’s solo project “Heart of Tones: Solo Trombone at The TANK,” a two-volume set recorded in the profound reverberation of a converted railroad water silo in rural Colorado.

    Levi Gillis is a songwriter, saxophonist and producer living in Los Angeles. He is a founding member of The Dip and has collaborated and toured with Wayne Horvitz, Cassandra Jenkins, Robin Holcomb among others. His music is mercurial – weaving together fingerstyle guitar and wild saxophone improvisations, oscillating between popular and experimental worlds. Critics have called his music “fascinating” and full of “focused intensity” (KNKX) “summoning soulful, ear-worming melodies” (Seattle CityArts Magazine). He comes to The Owl in support of his new solo

    EP, Don’t Hide – reuniting with his old musical compatriots Ryan Beckley (guitar), Carmen Quill (bass) and Mike Gebhart (drums).
