In her Chicago debut, Leila Bordreuil performs a solo amplified cello set, using a multichannel set-up of different types of speakers and guitar amplifiers. An assemblage of microphones placed on various parts of the cello create unique sound distortion possibilities that transform the cello into a polyphonic instrument, enhancing the instrument’s diversity of timbres.
Presented by Lampo and the Smart Museum of Art in conjunction with the special exhibition The History of Perception.
