Is New Art Music a cyborg? Technology–from creative amplification to interactive computer soundscapes–brings new strength to the most human of expressions. This program spins haunting moods from three turntables, unexpected percussion instruments, and urban rap embedded in a cushion of strings, blending roots and the never-before imagined.
The Chicago Fluxus Ensemble, led by Simon Anderson will stage performance pieces throughout the building before the concert; arrive early for a jolt of the unexpected!
