Frequency: Claire Chase
Event Info: constellation-chicago.com
In a mixtape world, Claire Chase makes solo flute albums that demand to be experienced top-to-bottom. The MacArthur Fellow's first two records, Aliento and Terrestre, are unassailable and we are greedily awaiting her latest, DENSITY. Descending from highest density (11 multi-tracked flutes) to lowest (solo), the tracklist sees Chase navigating scores by Steve Reich, Edgar Varèse, Alvin Lucier, Marcos Balter and Philip Glass with the help of sound engineer Levy Lorenzo. The boozy confines of Constellation and its excellent Frequency Series provide the setting for this singular Sunday Funday.
