DILIGENCE IS TO MAGIC AS PROGRESS IS TO FLIGHT
The product of over a year of work, Diligence comprises 3 pieces for solo violin, 1 piece for solo viola, and 1 piece for violin and chamber orchestra. These pieces are presented as part of an audio installation built from recordings of an array of instruments. Wulliman will navigate the performance using these instruments, which have been retuned and prepared so that each finds a unique niche within the overall work’s sonic ecosystem. Incorporating visual elements, including a video score that will be interpreted live, Diligence conjures a multi-layered environment. Employing amplification to bring out small sounds, Young will control the soundworld’s mix, manipulate samples live, and work with a detuned electric guitar.
Members of Chicago’s new music community, including performers from Spektral Quartet, Dal Niente and Third Coast Percussion, will perform in the chamber orchestra piece conducted by Michael Lewanski.
Friday 9/27 - 8 PM doors; 8:30 performance
