Event Description

Percussionist John Corkill aims to orient himself at an intersection, between avant-garde new music and the general public. As a part of UChicago Presents’ SOUND/SITES series in collaboration with the Department of Music, Corkill sculpts wonderful, curiosity-sparking performances that showcase the unique architecture at the University of Chicago. With drums, cymbals, chimes, bubble wrap, wood blocks, gongs, and more, Corkill takes advantage of the shapes, spaces, and surfaces of Mansueto library, Saieh Hall, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Robie House to create one-of-a-kind musical experiences featuring the work of composers with deep ties to Chicago.

Concert stream available from 7:00 pm CST on Thursday until 11:59 pm CST on Monday.
