Percussionist John Corkill aims to orient himself at an intersection, between avant-garde new music and the general public. As a part of UChicago Presents' SOUND/SITES series in collaboration with the Department of Music, Corkill sculpts wonderful, curiosity-sparking performances that showcase the unique architecture at the University of Chicago. With drums, cymbals, chimes, bubble wrap, wood blocks, gongs, and more, Corkill takes advantage of the shapes, spaces, and surfaces of Mansueto Library and Saieh Hall to create one-of-a-kind musical experiences featuring the work of composers with deep ties to Chicago.
Presented in partnership with the Department of Music.
