Expansive sound and polyrhythmic structures pervade the Wume duo's one hour set, which was performed live straight from the shipping container/recording studio in the serene garden at Pioneer Works. Listen to the vibrant noisy set recorded on July 1, 2016. Wume is April Camlin and Albert Schatz. They live and work in the fair land of Baltimore, Maryland after spending their formative years in Chicago. Their music explores polyrhythmic structures through the lens of kosmische and is in a constant state of evolution and self-reflection. The pair began the collaboration as a development of Camlin's drumming and Schatz’s interest in keyboards and synthesis. It became an exercise in pushing their abilities and conjuring vibes. Playing Hooky is a bi-monthly, live in-studio performance series, streamed live on Clocktower Radio at The programs are offered as a distraction from the work-week blues, and recorded, collected, and posted to this page alongside insightful interviews with the performers. Past episodes include performances from Frankie Cosmos, Helado Negro, Ikue Mori, Ned Rothenberg, and many more. Clocktower's Playing Hooky concert series is made possible, in part, by funds from the New York State Council on the Arts.
