Lampo and The Graham Foundation are pleased to present a performance by Leif Elggren as he makes his first Chicago appearance in nearly five years, performing new work for voice and live electronics.
Active since the late 1970s, Leif Elggren (b. 1950, Linköping, Sweden) is a writer, visual artist, art book publisher, stage performer and composer based in Stockholm. His varied and prolific output routinely involves dreams, subtle absurdities and social hierarchies turned upside-down. His audio work, both solo and with the Sons of God (with Kent Tankred), is often created as the soundtrack to an installation or experimental stage performance, and has been released on Ash International, Touch, Radium and his own Firework Edition.
Elggren also is co-monarch (with Carl Michael von Hausswolff) of Elgaland-Vargaland, a so-called digital monarchy that includes all areas of no-man's land, territories between national boundaries on both land and sea, digital and mental spaces.
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo, and made possible through support from the Graham Foundation, and the American-Scandinavian Foundation. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art and intermedia projects.
