July 14, 2016
6:00PM–7:00PM
Chicago Stock Exchange Trading Room, The Art Institute of Chicago
Free with museum admission; registration required
In this performance I will combine field recordings from Chicago soundscapes with live and recorded sounds by Aurelio, a musician, educator, ethno-musicologist, researcher, sound designer, and sound healer.

Using archaic, contemporary, and invented instruments, artist Aurelio leads an immersive and participatory sonic ceremony recalling the journeys taken by objects featured in Vanishing Beauty: Asian Jewelry and Ritual Objects from the Barbara and David Kipper Collection.

About the Artist:
Through his extensive travels and studies all around the world, Aurelio has become a noted pioneer in the development and manufacture of innovative musical instruments, whether it be simple inviting instruments for beginners, or instruments specially designed for use in sound healing. He is the Creative Director of SVARAM Musical Instruments, Vocational Training and Research Station.

Watch a performance by Aurelio.
