Slipstream is a contemporary chamber quartet based in Appleton, WI.
Originally inspired by Louis Andriessen’s Hout, we are dedicated to expanding the possibilities of our unique instrumentation (saxophone, guitar, piano, and percussion) through commissioning, collaboration, and improvisation. Since the fall of 2014, we have worked with artists including award winning composers John Mayrose and David Werfelmann to create more than a dozen new works for our ensemble.
In 2016 Slipstream released its first EP, Northland, which features the music of Slipstream and Jason Koth, Patrick Marschke, JP Merz, and Chris Misch-Bloxdorf.
Slipstream has performed and given workshops at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art, Drake University, Fox Valley Performing Arts Center, Interlochen Center for the Arts, Lawrence University, and University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.
