Dal Niente: Hard Music, Hard Liquor
Dal Niente: Hard Music, Hard Liquor
Ensemble Dal Niente has been a crucial presence on the Frequency Series since it started. In fact, the group performed on the very first Frequency concert in April of 2013. Last year the ensemble closed out the first Frequency Festival by reviving its much-loved “Hard Music, Hard Liquor” series, and by popular demand we’re thrilled to conclude this year’s festival with another bold installment. The program pits intensely virtuosic solo works against larger ensemble pieces. The concert opens with the Chicago premiere of Huck Hodge’s Apophenia, an ensemble work that explores spectral harmonies with the composer’s trademark “sparkle and thunder” (New York Times). The evening will end with the world premiere of Murat Çolak’s new composition for ensemble and multi-sensory media, which takes “the form of a trance-state reached via exposure to high-energy sounds and intense performance situations…concepts and sound-worlds Murat creates originate in the sacred chants of the İstanbul tilâvet tradition, repetitive drone music of Central Anatolia and underground electronic dance music of İstanbul’s (as well as Chicago’s) club scene.” The program also includes solo works by Ray Evanoff, Iannis Xenakis, Mark Andre, Michael Baldwin, and Joan LaBarbara.
