Reggie's Roundup is a monthly showcase that ropes together drag and live noise/ambient performance. Hosted by Irregular Girl (FKA, Duro Chicago, OutHaus), each Roundup features local talents that operate in dissimilar corners of nightlife, but seem to strive toward a shared purpose - tearing the house down, boots.
Natalie Chami adopted the TALsounds moniker in 2009 for her solo explorations in the drone, ambient, and electro-acoustic improv disciplines. In live performance, Chami's analog synthesizers weave together into drifting loops that evolve in tandem with her vocal leads and choral harmonies. Her meditative sessions stretch into hypnotizing depths of stream-of-consciousness multi-instrumental input, sinking into expanses of infinite sustain and cresting into bursts of noise from an arsenal of oscillators and effects pedals. She has toured the country and performed on five physical releases as a member of drone improv trio Good Willsmith, including their debut LP The Honeymoon Workbook (Umor Rex, 2014). Chami performs as half of ambient duo l'eternebre, and co-founded the experimental collective/netlabel Screaming Claws. She was born in Ontario and lives in Chicago.
