Join the Ten x Ten experience by witnessing a one of a kind, 10-piece ensemble made up of Chicago’s finest improvisers recording their music live at the Improvised Music Series: Recording Performance. Over the past month, 10 musicians were paired with 10 visual artists to create collaborative recordings and fine art prints. At the March 19th event, the same 10 musicians will present and record the culminating music and the public is invited to watch the process. Relying heavily on improvisation, each musician-artist pair workshopped their ideas at a Working Performance at Constellation and created joint artist statements that translate each artist’s ideas from sound to image, and vice versa. Sketches and other elements of the visual artists’ work will also be on display during the performance.
