    CANCELED: Derek Wothington’s Lossy Codecs

    Detroit-based composer, trumpet player, and electronic musician Derek Worthington brings his “Lossy Codecs” improvisation system to Chicago. The system involves mapping various musical parameters over time, and is utilized both in pre-written and real-time compositions. To direct the ensemble, Worthington uses an interface he has programmed that serves as a dynamic graphic score, mirroring his laptop to television screens for the performers to see. This performance will feature many of Chicago's most creative improvising musicians.
