The Cat Museum

The Cat Museum is a quartet that plays live psychedelic improvisational soundtracks to short mashup films about cats edited by performance artist Matt Fielder. The band formed in 2013 as an orchestra that often included up to eight musicians. The Cat Museum broke up in 2019 but reformed as a quartet in 2022, reuniting three original members Anthony Ausgang, Eric Potter, and Jim Within plus new theremin player Bo Chung. Releases featuring The Cat Museum include Waiting for Gato, on Exit Studio Recordings; the DEVOtional release Not Necessarily Beautiful…But Mutated Volume 10; and the IFAR Musique Concrète compilation Eye of Umbra.
