Opening night of the Chicago Festival begins with Chicago-based composer, performer, and installation-builder Jenna Lyle, co-founder of the media/performance collective Parlour Tapes+. Lyle will kick the Festival off with the world premiere of Louise, a work of her creation for solo performer, Sonic Fabric garment (invented and designed by Alyce Santoro and Scarlet Le), analog electronics, and live video projection. Named for the late Abstract Expressionist sculptor Louise Nevelson, the 3-part work explores the sound of sculptural movement and the sonic properties of textile. Chicago-NYC-based soprano Nina Dante, a core member of the Chicago ensemble Fonema Consort, will perform a series of recent and new works by longtime collaborators Pablo Chin, Juan Campoverde, and Julio Estrada. Dante will also premiere a new work composed by herself specifically for the Festival. Concluding the first night is vocalist/composer/visual artist Alejandro T. Acierto, presenting the Chicago premiere of his piece Cavities I-IV, as well as the world premiere of Transmit 4.x, a piece he has been developing since 2016.

“In equal measures intelligent, playful, ambitious and moving the program…illuminated the shape-shifting power of the human voice.” - Corinna da Fonseca-Wollheim, The New York Times
