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- opening reception >
April 3, 2015
6-9pm    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.

ESS & Frequency Series present: FRANCISCO LÓPEZ >
April 18, 2015
8:30pm    Constellation (3111 N Western)
Francisco López’s concerts are immersive sonic experiences in the dark, with multi-channel surround systems and blindfolds provided for the public. Created from a myriad original sound environments (both natural and artificial) collected all over the world, the performance will not present “soundscapes,” but rather virtual worlds of sound in which the listener develops his/her own experience in an environment where the rules and the parameters are defined by the sounds themselves—felt as space and as a physical dynamic force. Reknowned for the intensity, richness and complexity of these virtual worlds, López's performances are truly not-to-be-missed experiences.
