Composer and multi-instrumentalist Ben Zucker presents an evening of original works for open ensembles, the culmination of his doctoral research in composition and indeterminacy.
These world-premiere and US-premiere works use text and improvisational strategies to guide real-time musical decisions and instant reshaping of notational materials, in collaboration with local musicians reflecting the breadth of Zucker’s engagement with Chicago’s many experimental music scenes.
