Sarah Davachi performance


Composer and performer Sarah Davachi premieres Tenerae—a new long-form work for electric organ and four trombones, commissioned by Lampo for the Chicago Architecture Biennial.

Here, she plays Hammond B3 and is joined by Chicagoans Riley Leitch, Nick Broste, and Jeb Bishop, as well as her frequent Los Angeles-based collaborator Mattie Barbier.

As with all of Davachi’s work, harmony, texture, and duration are at the forefront of Tenerae, offering the listener an opportunity to sit with sound more directly, with reverence. In a manner that mimics the circular structure of the composition, the unique architecture and acoustics of Preston Bradley Hall shape the space of the performance.

Her music is concerned with the close intricacies of timbral and temporal space, using extended durations and considered harmonic structures that emphasize gradual variations in texture, overtone complexity, psychoacoustic phenomena, and tuning and intonation.

The performance is FREE to attend; RSVP at https://www.tickettailor.com/events/lampo/1107121
