Olivia Block with member of Chicago Composers Orchestra

Music, Classical and opera
Sound artist Block celebrates the release of Block's new album Karren, but locks into all new music here: an untitled solo work for violin, an untitled string quartet and a couple of works based on open scores. Anyone who's taken an improv class should recognize the inspiration behind Red Ball, Yellow Ball, a piece we asssume is based on throwing ideas at surprised fellow players. Field recordings, drones, white noise and other sonic material are used in Block's delicate sound architecture.
