Experimental Sound Studio Presents Fonema Consort

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

Embracing the operatic spirit of Sciarrino’s La perfezione di un spirito sottileExperimental Sound Studio (ESS) presents Fonema Consort in an outdoor musical experience within the private atmosphere of the studio's garden. In this program, the ecstatic crescendo of James Tenney's Having Never Written a Note for Percussion* for solo tam-tam functions as an overture to the spellbinding atmosphere of Sciarrino's quasi opera. This program sound-paints the colors of the sky at sunset with an extensive but focused immersion in the sound properties of the instrumental medium. Featuring Nathalie Colas (soprano), Dalia Chin (flute) and Ryan Packard (percussion).
*Replacing Han's Thomalla's Percussion Counterpart, due to performer's injury
