Memorize the Sky is a collaboration between reedist Matt Bauder, bassist Zach Wallace and percussionist Aaron Siegel. The three met and began playing music together in Ann Arbor, Michigan during the late 1990?s. Since then, they have performed together as Memorize the Sky, touring around the United States, crafting their own brand of acoustic improvised music. The band has self-released three 3? cd singles, appeared on various compilations, and are featured on ?2 + 2 Compositions? a collaboration with Anthony Braxton, released in 2005 on the 482 Music label. Their self-titled full-length recording was released to wide acclaim on 482 Music in May of 2007 (Phillip Clark named it one of the 10 best recordings of 2007). MTS is informed by the diverse musical experiences of its members, including performances and recordings with rock bands 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.
