Experimental Sound Studio presents: Jennifer Walshe & Mocrep
Chicago Athletic Association hotel is excited to partner with Experimental Sound Studio to present a performance of works by Jennifer Walshe in collaboration with Mocrep. This exciting interdisciplinary collaboration between Walshe and Mocrep will include moments of karaoke, sounds of the outdoors and sometimes no sound at all. This performance has been facilitated by the Aisteach Institute, the Avant Garde Archive of Ireland, and will feature the Chicago premier of the film, AN GLÉACHT. Jennifer Walshe’s Chicago appearance is sponsored by the Sound Department of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
The program continues an established relationship between Walshe and Mocrep. They began working together in 2015, when Mocrep presented her work Hygiene as part of the Mathias Spahlinger Festival There is No Repetition. In 2016 they presented the US premiere of her barbie opera, XXX_LIVE_NUDE_GIRLS and have performed Volunteer Chorus, a choral work which mines social media platforms for content, at the international Summer Courses for New Music Darmstadt (2016) and the Art Institute of Chicago (2017).
