Chicago Humanities Festival

November 6, 2016 @ 6:00 pm

Already obsessed with different kinds of time—human time, the “spectral” time of sleep, the compressed cycles of insect noise—French composer Gérard Grisey was bowled over when he heard the percussive and regular emissions of pulsars, the super-dense remnants of stars that have gone super-nova. Third Coast Percussion perform the striking result, Le Noir de l’Etoile, an unforgettable composition for six percussionists and tape with the musicians surrounding the audience.

GÉRARD GRISEY Le Noir de l’Etoile

with special guests Gregory Beyer and John Corkill
