• Matt Bauder

Regular readers of the Reader probably know that I’ve been a huge fan of reedist and composer Matt Bauder since his Chicago days back at the turn of the century. He only lived here for two years—since then he’s gone to grad school at Wesleyan and spent a year at the prestigious ZKM in Karlsruhe, Germany, and he now lives in New York—but he made a big impact during that short time, and he’s been a regular visitor ever since.
