Concert

Frolic Architecture
David Grubbs (electronics) and Susan Howe (spoken word)

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: FREE
 

Grubbs and Howe return for a performance of their third and most recent release Frolic Architecture. Frolic drops the listener into a soundworld that germinates wildly from this most multiple and heterogeneous of Howe's celebrated collage poems. For long stretches, it is impossible to separate Howe's real-time performance of her fragment-strewn text from Grubbs's further deformations, scatterings, and layerings. These aberrant vocalizations are placed in a landscape in which individual pitches pulse autonomously within thick chords: gravel and cicadas duet.
This concert is co-sponsored with Poem Present and the University of Chicago Department of English, Committee on Creative Writing. This concert will take place in Bond Chapel.
