KAYLEIGH BUTCHER & HOPE LITTWIN @ Constellation

OGNI SUONO
Formed by American saxophonists Noa Even and Phil Pierick in 2009, Ogni Suono is committed to expanding and promoting the repertoire for saxophone duo by commissioning and performing new works. Delicate, raucous, and everything in between, the music of Hong-Da Chin, Alex Mincek, Quinn Collins, James Bunch, and Ian Dicke oscillates between hocketed, layered, and blended textures, pushing the boundaries of expression possible for two saxophones.

Hong-Da Chin - Two Broken Records (2015)
Alex Mincek - Karate (2001/3)
Quinn Collins - Dart: don't be his shadow (2011)
James Bunch - ogni suono come un essere vivente (2009)
Ian Dicke - Straphanger (2012)

KAYLEIGH BUTCHER & HOPE LITTWIN
Kayleigh Butcher and Hope Littwin will be performing Kaija Saariaho's vocal duo From The Grammar of Dreams. This piece takes its text from different poems by Sylvia Plath which are then strewn together to create disjunct, sometimes odd, and surreal dream-like narratives.

GRAHAM STEPHENSON & AARON ZARZUTZKI
Graham Stephenson (trumpet) and Aaron Zarzutzki (synthesizer) are part of Chicago's improvised music community centered around Myopic Bookstore and other long-running platforms. They use the extremities of their instruments to explore unstable sounds and textures. They have performed as a duo in Steuben, St. Paul, and Brooklyn, and in many other contexts and groups of improvisers in Chicago. Their 2013 record, Touching, was released by Erstwhile Records; tonight's show is a release event for No Dice, from Hideous Replica (UK), itself a recording of the Touching release show. Tonight's performance will incorporate a 20th century score in addition to improvisation.

3 Singers Project in Poland

Composer Ryan Ingebritsen, dance and sculptural artistErica Mott, video artist John Boesche, experimental vocal performer, Fides Krucker, and choreographer and dramaturg, Ginger Farley are engaging in a two-year period of physical and technical research and development of an immersive sound and performance installation, titled 3 Singers: a techno opera.

Cast: Hope Littwin, Jenna Lyle, Katie Mazzini

Focusing on sonic landscapes and movement associated with modern trends of labor and how technology developed to increase efficiency has affected worker and end user alike, 3 Singers will explore the dilemmas of textile workers from three different time periods by taking three female vocalists on a journey that melds symbols, sights and sounds from all three eras.

This work will be developed through residencies at The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago, Ingenuity Fest Lab Artist Program, and Cricoteka and is scheduled to premiere in Autumn, 2014.
