Jason Lescalleet makes his music using a collection of vintage reel-to-reel tape recorders and simple electronics, running loops of crumpled tape between machines. He blends layers of found sound, amplified silences, and artifacts of everyday noise, all transformed through various microphones and speakers. In his much anticipated return to Chicago, he’ll play with the resonance of Bond Chapel’s neo-Gothic space.
Jason Lescalleet will perform this Saturday, June 8th at Bond Chapel (1050 East 59th Street ) on the campus of The University of Chicago. Admission is free and open to the public; no RSVP required. The concert is presented in partnership with Lampo and is generously sponsored by Leslie Bodenstein and Jason Pickleman.
The Renaissance Society and Poet Present Reading and Lecture Series will present a poetry reading by Ariana Reines. The reading will take place at Midway 108, 929 E. 60th St., on the campus of the University.
