Dal Niente presents: Holes and Tunnels at Constellation

  • Constellation Chicago 3111 North Western Avenue Chicago, IL, 60618 United States (map)

Humans and objects merge to form a hybrid space of perforated sounds, shifting locations, and disorienting structures in this evening of experimental pieces by Sivan Cohen Elias, whose strange inventions tie together movement, sound, space, and visual objects; Fredrick Gifford, whose compositions, dependent on real-time listening cues and performer interactions, are never the same twice; and Michelle Lou’s “wobbly, obsessive” Untitled Three Part Construction for electric guitar and two performers who click, crank, and clack.
