The opening will be accompanied by a live performance of Brün’s works, organized by Jeff Kowalkowski featuring

Samuel Salathiel Bradshaw (contra basso) and Pantellis Bolarakis (piano) will play a selection of Brün’s scores:

“Laughing Third” (1995) solo piano

“Futility” (1964) for tape

Herbert Brün (Berlin, 1918 – Urbana, 2000) is widely recognized as a visionary pioneer in electronic composition including music and graphics, with his computer graphics representing a watershed in early computer art and design. Brün was the first musical director to bring electronic compositions to the stage in Munich in the early 1950’s. ESS is delighted to collaborate with Rare Nest gallery and the Brün Estate in presenting Brün’s graphics to a wider community.

This exhibition is an extension of Rare Nest gallery’s exhibition Herbert Brün 100 during summer of 2018, which was the first major present Herbert Brün’s graphics in Chicago.
