Matana Roberts, an avant-garde jazz practitioner, gives a performance of her solo work inspired by travels through the American South—titled Coin Coin.

Roberts has long described Coin Coin as “panoramic sound quilting,” a metaphor she overtly implements with this third chapter—a sound-art tapestry created from field recordings, loop and effects pedals, and spoken word recitations, alongside her saxophone and singing voices. Coin Coin Chapter 3: River Run Thee unfolds as an uninterrupted album-length flow, in what Roberts calls “a fever dream” of sonic material, inspired by a her solitary research-based road trip taken in early 2014.

This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Charles White: A Retrospective at the Art Institute of Chicago.
