Olivia Block is returning to St. Louis to perform at 9:00 p.m. next Wednesday, November 11 at Foam, 3359 Cherokee.
Block (pictured), who's based in Chicago, uses a combination of field recordings, composed music for acoustic instruments, and electronically generated sound to create works for live performance, recorded media, chamber ensembles, video, and site-specific sound installations.
She has performed here before a couple of times in events presented by New Music Circle, most recently as part of a program co-presented by NMC and the St. Louis International Film Festival in November 2013 at the St. Louis Art Museum.
The opening act for Block's show at Foam will be Circuit des Yeux, aka Haley Fohr, a solo performer who works with bent electronics, vocals, percussion, piano, and acoustic guitar.
Admission to the all-ages show is $10 and $15 at the door.
