Chicago Sound Map began in 2007 as an annual new music festival. It was initiated by [a=Boris Hauf], and curators of the festival includes himself, [a=Michael Hartman], [a=Brian Labycz] (Koura) and [url=]D Bayne[/url]. Each year a selection of composers is invited to devise musical systems that focus on the dualism of composition and improvisation. A large ensemble of improvisers interprets each composer's proposal. Each composition has limited rehearsal (depending on the amount of composition from 90-180 mins per piece plus an extended soundcheck).

In 2007-2010 Chicago Sound Map festivals took place annually and invited composers were: Olivia Block, Brent Gutzeit, Burkhard Stangl, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Zerang, Dudley Bayne, Ernst Karel, Kevin Davis, Jim Baker, Kyle Bruckmann, Don Malone, Adam Sonderberg, Judith Unterpertinger, Jeb Bishop.

In 2008 Kuro Neko Music released the CD [r1559589] which documents that year's performance at the Chicago Cultural Center.
