a.pe.ri.od.ic (32): Gerhard Staebler and Kunsu Shim Residency
Fluxus inspired performance artists, known for their simultaneous performance of multiple works, German composer/performer duo Gerhard Staebler and Kunsu Shim return to Chicago for a second residency with a.pe.ri.od.ic ensemble.

The evening will feature a program of their compositions, as well as performances by Staebler/Shim.

a•pe•ri•od•ic is a Chicago-based performance collective featuring post-Cagean notated, acoustic, experimental music. Founded in 2010, a•pe•ri•od•ic ‘s repertoire explores the indeterminacy of various musical elements including instrumentation, structure, pitch, and/or duration. Drawn to works of sparseness, contemplation, and quietude, this "daring group" (Chicago Reader) has a history of interpreting distinctive pieces using a collaborative rehearsal process, deriving meaning and intention from oblique prose scores with great sensitivity.
Led by Nomi Epstein, the ensemble has commissioned, premiered, and recorded works by composers such as Michael Pisaro, Eva-Maria Houben, Jürg Frey, James Saunders, and Pauline Oliveros. a.pe.ri.od.ic released its debut album, more or less, featuring the music of Jürg Frey in 2014 under New Focus Recordings. The ensemble has received funding from the Swiss Arts Council, the Earle Brown Foundation, the Goethe Institute, and the Foundation of Contemporary Arts. Members of a.pe.ri.od.ic hold graduate degrees in music performance or composition from Chicago-area universities and conservatories, and are featured in other Chicago-based groups including Ensemble Dal Niente, Outer Voices, and NbN.

This concert is supported by the Goethe Institute of Chicago.
