Dal Niente + Erin Gee: Northern Illinois New Music Festival

Erin Gee’s award-winning Mouthpiece series uses non-traditional vocal sounds to construct intricate sonic landscapes. In Mouthpiece 32, written for Dal Niente in 2018, Gee approaches the sound-worlds of specific insects, animals, and plants, mapping insect and human sound-production techniques on to each other to create music that is at once strange, familiar, and new. This program features Mouthpiece 32 along with works by NIU student composers. More Information at www.dalniente.com

The Music of Roscoe Mitchell: Dal Niente + Ken Vandermark

Dal Niente, in large ensemble form, teams up with legendary saxophonist Ken Vandermark to perform brand-new music by Roscoe Mitchell, a fearless musical pioneer whose music has, over the last half-century, changed the very definition of what is possible. Dal Niente co-commissioned this work with the Birdhouse, an organization dedicated to honoring the legacy of Fred Andersen, whose Velvet Lounge was an anchor for new forms of music in Chicago for decades.

VV Lightbody/ Valley Maker @ the Hideout

V.V. Lightbody (Vivian McConnell from Chicago bands Santah / Grandkids) plays music that is self-described as nap-rock. V.V. released her debut LP, 'Bathing Peach', in June of 2018. Her songs have cocktail lounge vibes; layered with flutes & lyrics about dried fruit. Think of glitching mermaids with dozing and comfortable songs.
