Chicago OpenICE at Corbett vs. Dempsey

  • Corbett vs. Dempsey 1120 North Ashland Avenue Chicago, IL, 60622 United States (map)

Come to the next free concert in our Chicago OpenICE series, with Levy Lorenzo (percussion/electronics) and Peter Evans (trumpets)!

Levy Lorenzo and Peter Evans began their performing duo as part of ICE's OpenICE series in early 2016.  Their music is an otherworldly blur of dense rhythmic frameworks, elaborate notated pieces, open improvisation and weird drones.  Lorenzo's complex of self-built instruments, gongs, dry percussion, laptop and sound processing engage with Evans's acoustic trumpet in a dialogue of noise, mystery, precision and chaos.
