ESS's Outer Ear Series presents Fonema Consort's Pasos en otra calle Album Release

  • Experimental Sound Studio 5925 North Ravenswood Avenue Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)

Fonema Consort is thrilled to present its first album, “Pasos en otra calle,” which compiles vocal and instrumental works by Costa Rican composers Pablo Santiago Chin and Mauricio Pauly, and that is partially funded by the “Dotación Musical” Grant from the Costa Rican Association of Musical Authors (ACAM).

As Fonema's musicologist in residence, Etha Willimas writes in the liner notes: "the music by Mauricio Pauly and Pablo Chin collected on Fonema Consort's debut recording explores the boundaries of form—where structures are endangered by the very tensions that sustain them—and of meaning—where words verge on pure sound and where musical sound is itself loosed from its conventional moorings."

Selections from the CD and other chamber works will accompany this special evening.
