OSCILLATIONS: Daniel Wyche / Byron Westbrook

Experimental Sound Studio: 5925 N Ravenswood Ave, Chicago, Illinois 60660

Guitarist/composer Daniel Wyche will present a new, ensemble realization of The Fire in the Lacquer House, a 2013 piece composed in collaboration with Madison-based composer Jonathan Lang. The work consists of a descending progression of 19 chords, divided into six 'lines' of consecutive notes which are played independently and simultaneously by the performers. All the while, audience members will use provided CV controllers to modulate various parameters of the sound. The ensemble features some of the most accomplished young instrumentalists in Chicago, including Andrew Clinkman (guitar), Lia Kohl (cello), and Ryan Packard (percussion, vibraphone).
