RGB Trio & RP and Friends$10RGB operates within the great tradition of Chicago groove-based improvised music. Comprised of Paul Giallorenzo on keyboards, Charlie Kirchen on bass, and Ryan Packard on drums, the group’s improvisations are built around dark and hypnotic grooves that evolve through a series of almost microscopic shifts in the material. This performance is part of a midwestern tour commemorating the release of the group’s first album. For the opening set, Danish vocalist RP makes her Chicago debut.
9 PM : RP & FRIENDS
RP – vocals
With nothing but her voice and live electronics, Danish vocalist, composer and improviser RP creates vast sonic landscapes full of organic warmth and poetic sensibility. For this concert RP will use the room, time, space, public and elements from her new solo album, Rooms out on Chant Records Feb.18 – a highly personal piece of work drawing on inspirations ranging from free jazz and electroacoustic composition to sound poetry.
