I’m very excited to be back in Chicago at the end of August for a bit, and will be playing a solo set at Constellation with Jessica Pavone. If you are in the area, please come out, it should be a great night!
Here is what Jess is up to:
Jessica Pavone’s recent works for solo viola and voice stem from years of concentrated long tone practice and an interest in repetition, song form, and sympathetic vibration. She combines her long tone rituals with delay, understated melodies and sparse lyrical content while continuously experimenting with new forms.
This tour celebrates the release of Pavone’s new album, Kunckle Under, released by Taiga Records.

“Pavone has the ability to transform a naked tonal gesture into something special” – Philip Clark, The Wire
“[D]istinct and beguiling…its core is steely, and its execution clear.” – Nate Chinen, New York Times
