a·pe·ri·od·ic 

A Chicago-based concert series and performance collective curated by Nomi Epstein featuring post-Cagean notated, acoustic, experimental music.* Founded in 2010, a.pe.ri.od.ic’s repertoire explores the indeterminacy of various musical elements including instrumentation, structure, pitch, and/or duration. Drawn to works of sparseness, contemplation, and quietude, this “daring group” (Chicago Reader) focuses on scores primarily notated with prose.  The ensemble has commissioned, premiered, and recorded works by composers such as Michael Pisaro, Eva-Maria Houben, Jürg Frey, James Saunders, and Pauline Oliveros.

*Founded by Nomi Epstein and Lee Weisert in 2010.
