FONEMA CONSORT: PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION

PICTURES AT AN EXHIBITION: MUSIC WITH VISUALS
Since forming in 2012, Fonema Consort has steadily gained a well-deserved reputation as one Chicago’s most daring new music groups, with a special focus on experimental vocal repertoire and new compositions from the Spanish-speaking world—whether from co-leader Pablo Chin’s own Costa Rica, Spain, or countless South American locales. Pictures of an Exhibition presents works based on visuals, whether a painting (Richard Barrett), drawing (Pablo Chin), photographs (Louis Nielson) or video (Bethany Younge), highlighting subjects of social oppression, civil rights and feminism.
