Come celebrate the upcoming album from composer Danny Clay and keyboardist Mabel Kwan in true solemn Easter fashion! Danny and Mabel will be performing a variation of their new clavichord-centric collaboration, Inventions, at Chicago's saki record store. As she does on the album, Mabel will investigate the most microscopic of sounds from every surface of the clavichord, while Danny accompanies her with live electronic manipulation and a set of quirky homemade instruments.
IT'S GOING TO BE VERY QUIET.
So, in (maybe) typical Holy Saturday fashion (kind of), attendees will be asked to take a vow of silence† for the first half of the evening, concluding with the performance. After the concert ends and the vow is broken, all will be immediately rewarded with an EASTER TAPE HUNT™. Special bonus cassettes provided by the Parlour Tapes+ crew will be hidden all over the store for attendees to find and get giddy about.
Suggested donation is $10. The Inventions limited edition cassette will be available for the very special price of $5! It comes with lil' legs that you can attach to the tape case so it looks like a clavichord. ;)
