Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our season opening concert! We appreciate the support and enthusiasm and we will keep the shows rolling until the end of the year. Please check out our second show of the season, featuring an up-and-coming quartet from France that combines elements of modern composition, experimental rock, and instrumental music. Once again, we will be working with KDHX to bring you new sounds. Additional information is below and in the Upcoming Events page.
Sylvaine Hélary (France) is a composer, and flutist, active in a multitude of endeavors, from performance art, composing for large ensembles, to improvised engagements with Chicago figures such as cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and percussionist Mike Reed. Her most recent ensemble, working under the title Spring Roll, covers a span of styles, warranting comparisons to Ornette Coleman and Harry Partch, as well as underground-rock greats Henry Cow and Captain Beefheart.
