Saturday November 3, 8 pm
Composer, experimental guitarist, and writer Alan Licht is revered for his work in The Blue Humans and Text of Light. Since the early 1990s he has developed a repertoire of structured improvisation pieces for solo electric guitar, bringing together his interests in reharmonization (from jazz and classical music), process, repetition, and extended duration, and the textural vocabularies of rock and noise music. For this concert, Licht presents a new solo work. Free; reservations are requested. Event attendees may also RSVP by calling 773.702.8670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Co-presented by the Renaissance Society and Lampo.

LOW at 25! Since 1993, Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker—whose heaven-and-earth harmonies hold the band’s center—have pioneered a subgenre, shrugged off its strictures, become a magnetic onstage force, and emerged as one of music’s most steadfast and vital vehicles for pulling light from our emotional recesses. But no mawkish nostalgia or safe runs: LOW releases its most brazen, abrasive, and empowering album: Double Negative. General $25, students with UCID $11. Presented by Empty Bottle, with Rockefeller Chapel.
Sunday December 2, 3 pm

Montreal-based composer Kara-Lis Coverdale draws on her experiences as a classically-trained pianist, church organist, and omnivorous explorer of electronic music. In her albums on labels such as Boomkat, Sacred Phrases, and Umor Rex, and in intense, explorative live performances, Coverdale manipulates sounds from synthetic and traditional instruments to create layered textures and spacious arrangements. In many compositions, her vignettes explore how sonic material can evoke complex feelings such as sanctity, disembodiment, aggression, and ethereal beauty.Free; reservations are requested. Event attendees may also RSVP by calling 773.702.8670 or email email@example.com. Co-presented by the Renaissance Society and Lampo.
