Physics for Listeners: A Composers’ Concert at Constellation
November 19 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm
Physics for Listeners: A Composers’ Concert
ZRL (Zach Good, Ryan Packard & Lia Kohl) performing compositions of Ben Lamar Gay, OHMME (Macie Stewart and Sima Cunningham), Sam Scranton, and Ayanna Woods
Physics for Listeners: a Composers’ Concert is a commissioned concert series that presents new work from Chicago composers spanning contemporary-classical, jazz & improvised, and experimental-rock. With the input of ZRL, Homeroom commissioned four composers to each create a unique composition collaboratively with the trio. At its core, Physics for Listeners is an exploration of the techniques and approaches of composers from distinct traditions. The concert encourages collaboration, experimentation, and dialogue amongst the composers, providing insight into the similarities and differences that define each composer and his or her approach. For this concert, the audience is invited to hear the compositions performed for the first time and join a conversation with the composers and musicians led by Deidre Huckabay.
