Founded in 1986, Experimental Sound Studio (ESS) is a Chicago-based organization dedicated to artistic evolution and the creative exploration of sound. ESS facilitates the creation, presentation, and documentation of innovative work related to the sonic arts, supporting nearly 400 artists each year in our recording studio, through artist residencies, as fiscal sponsors, and in nearly 100 public performances, installations, and workshops. All proceeds go directly back into our programs, supporting the artists we work with and helping ESS continue to make space for creative experimentation in Chicago.

The VIP ticket holders receive reserved front row seating at Michael Zerang‘s May Chapel Concert October 6, a limited edition artist-designed t-shirt by Melina Ausikaitis , two drink tickets each, and the joy of knowing that you have provided significant support for artists experimenting in Chicago.
