Nick Macri
- electric and acoustic basses, electronics, percussion

“...combines jagged amplified bass and textural percussion into a boiling haze...gritty electronics with recorded vocalizations as he generates feedback and noise from his amp… melodic yet open-ended. Subtle processing gives certain passages a shimmering nature, with repetitive echoes and pulses touching on minimalism...At only 34 minutes, Amache is confidently unpretentious. Macri says his piece and then stops. The album is a relentlessly outside exercise in experimentation, and yet quite charming in its raw honesty. Highly recommended.” – Avant Music News, Mike Borella

"Bassist Nick Macri has been exploring Chicago’s slipstream of creative music for decades from collaborative, creative groups and ad hoc improvised pairings, to notable sideman gigs, and the rare solo excursion. He is a founding member of the collective trio Stirrup with Fred Lonberg-Holm and Charles Rumback and is/was a contributing member to many, varied groups including Ken Vandermark’s Audio One, Momentum 3, and Momentum 5 groups, instrumental explorers Euphone and Heroic Doses, art-pop quartet The Zincs, and the pastoral, psych-folk of The Horse's Ha (with Janet Bean and James Elkington). He has performed and toured as a sideman and recorded sessions with an eclectic list of artists including Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab, The Sea and Cake, Daughter of Swords, Nina Nastasia, Azita, James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg, Joan Shelley, Wanees Zarour, Hector Zazou of ZNR, and visual artist Bruce Licher of Savage Republic. He has performed across Europe, Asia, South America, and North America including concerts at Saalfelden Jazz Festival (Austria), Festival de Musique Actuelle Victoriaville (Canada), All Tomorrow's Parties (U.K.), the London Institute of Contemporary Arts, and the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago)."

“My natural state as a musician has always been one of collaboration. Whether creatively conspiring with other players in a rehearsal room or on a recording session, side-mousing it (to borrow a phrase from Mike Watt) on a tour, or building something from the ground up with some long-standing comrades, I am most comfortable making noise with others. So, the opportunity to perform a solo, improvised set before a studio audience at Experimental Sound Studio was intimidating, exhilarating, and a challenge I knew I had to accept.
Amache is dedicated to The Chicago Resettlers, the tens of thousands of Japanese American citizens who reestablished their lives and communities in Chicago after being incarcerated by the United States in the internment camps of World War II.” – Nick Macri, Chicago
