Natural Information Society, a Chicago-based band led by Joshua Abrams, uses traditional and electric instrumentation to develop layered aural environments with a psychedelic feeling. Their music builds on the hypnotic qualities of the guimbri, a three-stringed instrument used by the Gnawan people in West Africa, while also drawing on a range of contemporary forms including jazz, minimalism, and krautrock. At Bond Chapel, the group presents a new piece, featuring an expanded line-up of musicians.
