The Frequency Series Presents Fonema Consort's Interventions

  • Constellation 3111 North Western Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

Featuring trombonist Weston Olencki, this program explores the role of auxiliary performers in questioning mediums that have historically been taken for granted. In Clint MacCullum's Twinzies, both the flutist and the vocalist crossover as they intervene into each other's instrument, while in Pablo Chin's new work From Afar, a short vocal duo is inserted into a piece for solo trombone. Katherine Young's puddles and crumbs amplifies and processes electronically trombone sounds beyond recognition so that such sonic outcome intercedes in the traditional physical means of technical production. The program also features Marisol Jiménez' Caro Cibus, which displays a series of self-made objects to expand the mechanism of instrumental sound production.
