sans le systeme is an experimental music / performance project led by composer / director JG Everest (Lateduster, BLACKFISH, Grave Trio, WAREY), based in Minneapolis, MN.

Founded in 2002 as a Lateduster side project, SLS first appeared on the Crossfaded Vol.1 compilation, (Groove Garden) with a track called “Wipes (thank you & goodbye)” featuring Martin Dosh, Jeremy Ylvisaker, and Mark Erickson (FOG).

JG Everest revived SLS in 2015 with a weekly summer residency at The Third Bird, launching the iNMiGRATiON series, with a different SLS lineup each week and live video projections by video artist Brian Dehler.  A second, Winter iNMiGRATiON residency followed at ICEHOUSE Mpls, where Everest expanded the “installation environments” vision to include the Free Range Orchestra & Choir roving throughout the space.

Following the indoor residencies, Everest shifted iNMiGRATiON to a series of outdoor locations and special events, including the The Wolf House, Midtown Farmers Market, Square Lake Film & Music Festival, The American Swedish Institute, and Hook & Ladder.
