Slipstream performing

Slipstream is a contemporary chamber quartet currently based in Appleton, Wisconsin, comprising saxophonist Joe Connor, guitarist Ilan Blanck, pianist Matt Blair, and percussionist Dan Reifsteck. Originally inspired by Louis Andriessen’s Hout, Slipstream is dedicated to expanding the possibilities of their unique instrumentation (saxophone, guitar, piano, and percussion) through commissioning, collaboration, and improvisation. Since the fall of 2014, they have worked with many artists including award winning composers John Mayrose and David Werfelmann to create more than a dozen new works for their ensemble.
