Event description
Ensemble Dal Niente returns with two world premieres to wind-up the 2019 Frequency Festival

About this Event

For the closing concert of Constellation’s annual Frequency Festival, Dal Niente brings two incredible composers back to Chicago with world premieres from Viola Yip and Ted Hearne. Alex Ross wrote in The New Yorker that Ted Hearne's music "holds up as a complex mirror image of an information-saturated, mass-surveillance world, and remains staggering in its impact." His new piece for Dal Niente will reflect his dual fascinations with high and mass culture, as musicians sample and re-use their own sounds. Meanwhile, Viola Yip’s music explores the resonances between visual and sonic vibrations: In the Hong Kong and NYC-based composer’s new work for Dal Niente, musicians will interact with a stage-sized “chandelier” of lights as well as their own instruments, creating a multi-sensory experience that uses space, light, and sound as musical material.

"a superb contemporary-music collective." - The New York Times
