Mexican composers Luis Amaya and Davis Pinson join Emily Beisel in their trio Fat Pigeon to present an eclectic mixture of music genres and styles departing from their unorthodox instrumentation: clarinet(s), electric guitar and cajón peruano. In Beisel’s words: “To this framework we wish to bring the open spaces of our ploy-stylistic backgrounds in jazz, rock, classical and contemporary performance. We want to infringe on each others sonic territory and climb into each other’s sounds and ideas. Groove, breath, math, voices, mind games, and imaginary rooms.” Interspersed with their sets, Fonema Consort will present art videos with music by Mexican composer Marisol Jimenez, and Costa Rican composer Mauricio Pauly from Fonema’s album Pasos en otra calle.
LATINxARTS and the Hairpins Arts Center will host between September 15 and October 15 Latino/a/x identified artists from across Chicago from all different disciplines and backgrounds.
