Florasonic: Hauf/Jackson: 'Round the creep of the wave line' >
February 8, 2015 - May 31, 2015
9am-5pm    Lincoln Park Conservatory, 2391 N Stockton Dr., Chicago
What you'll hear in the Fern Room is Round the creep of the wave line by composers and musicians Boris Hauf and Keefe Jackson. For this collaboration, the composers considered the materials and elements in the Fern Room—soil, metal, glass and sunlight—in parallel to the materials and elements of the saxophones and clarinets they play—wood, metal, plastic and breath.

Stefan Roigk: 'frombergMIX' 2015 - gallery hours >
May 2, 2015 - May 3, 2015
1-5pm    Experimental Sound Studio, 5925 N. Ravenswood
The multi-channel installation frombergMIX is based on a very subjective interpretation of John Cage’s Fontana Mix (1958). Instead of manually evaluating the 20-page score, Roigk has developed a 16-channel software patch which utilizes the idea of the aleatoric composition to create an ongoing soundscape with his own artistic vocabulary.

Samson Cheung: As I have listened / Please chat with me >
May 9, 2015
6pm    Experimental Sound Studio
Visiting artist Samson Cheung, from Hong Kong, has been in residency at ESS for several weeks, inaugurating the new Wavefront international artist exchange program with soundpocket. In his performance 'As I have listened / Please chat with me,' Samson invites the audience to respond, interact, and improvise with the evolving contents of his Chicago journey, using objects, texts, and simple instructions based on his experiences. This reflects his change of mind from a passive to an active way of adapting to a new place, and creates yet another new layer of his (shared) memories in the US.
