HÅVARD WIIK is a member and founder of numerous leading ensembles, including Atomic, Håvard Wiik Trio, Side A, Motif, Der lange Schatten, and Free Fall. In 2004, he was artist-in-residence at the Molde International Jazz Festival. In 2006, he received the Kongsberg Jazz Festival’s Vital Prize. In 2007, he relocated to Berlin, where he has been working with musicians including Axel Dörner, Michael Thieke, Tobias Delius, Jan Roder, Tristan Honsinger, Christian Lillinger, and Antonio Borghini.

SILKE EBERHARD is a saxophonist, clarinetist, and composer and the recipient of the 2020 Jazzpreis Berlin. She formed the Silke Eberhard Trio in 2006 and has released three acclaimed albums: Being (2008), What a Beauty Being (2011), and The Being Inn (2017), the latter winning the German Record Critics Award. Her intensive occupation with the music of Eric Dolphy led to the project Potsa Lotsa, initially a wind quartet, interpreting the complete works of Dolphy.

JOEL GRIP is a double bassist, filmmaker, producer, and founder of Umlaut Records. Since 2003 he has been one of the main organizers of Hagenfesten in Dala-Floda, Sweden. His many projects include Oúat (with Simon Sieger and Michael Griener), أحمد [ahmed] (with Pat Thomas, Seymour Wright, and Antonin Gerbal), Klub Demboh, three separate trios with Sven-Åke Johansson, and Peeping Tom (with Axel Dörner, Pierre-Antoine Badaroux, and Antonin Gerbal). He also works with contemporary and Butoh dancers, as well as artists, poets, and filmmakers.

MIKE REED is a musician, composer, bandleader and arts presenter based in Chicago. His long-running post-bop quartet People, Places & Things has collaborated with guest musicians like Ira Sullivan, Julian Priester, Art Hoyle, Craig Taborn, and Matthew Shipp. Reed also leads the quintet Loose Assembly as well as the octet Living by Lanterns (which includes guitarist Mary Halvorson, cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum, drummer Tomas Fujiwara, and saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock). He also plays in Artifacts, a collective trio with flutist Nicole Mitchell and cellist Tomeka Reid, devoted to interpreting music by members of the AACM—a body of work rarely interpreted by musicians other than the composers.

NOWHERE STREET is a concert series curated by music journalist and programmer Peter Margasak.
