Chicago's Magazine for New Music & Culture

kəˈkäfənē/ noun. noise, a dissonant mixture of sounds.  



CACOPHONY is a Chicago based magazine dedicated to the advocation of contemporary music making and performance. We strive to provide an outlet and platform for artists involved in various genres, backgrounds, and experiences throughout Chicago to further unite those interested in highly creative and demanding music and performance work. Our concert reviews, interviews, and essays serve to foster a healthy and constructive critique for community members to regularly engage with and aid artists in their personal growth, as well as reach out to a larger community of audiences. 


Submit your reaction to any concert from the 2017 Frequency Festival. We will publish reactions in groups by concert. Feel free to be creative with your format (write a haiku, a list, a paragraph!).

Guidelines: Reactions should be limited to 1700 characters. We reserve the right to edit reactions for errors or inconsistencies. We reserve the right to not share a review, especially if it includes inflammatory or offensive language.
