In the Chicago Calling Festival, Chicago-based artists will showcase performances and projects that involve collaborations with artists living in other locations-here in the U.S. and in other countries worldwide. For more info please visit www.chicagocalling.org.

Weave Soundpainting Orchestra (Chicago, IL) and Tintinnabulate (Troy, NY) collaborate via Internet as part of the Chicago Calling Festival at the Empty Bottle and the IEAR Series at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Using live audio and video streams, the two groups will improvise together in real time, first for Paula Matthusen's installation Filling Vessels, and second as an open multidisciplinary improvisation.

Weave Soundpainting Orchestra is a multidisciplinary performance ensemble based in Chicago, IL. Featuring musicians, actors, dancers, and visual art Soundpainted by Artistic Director Sarah Weaver, Weave is on the forefront of new genres in contemporary multidisciplinary performance. Soundpainting is the live composing sign language created by New York composer Walter Thompson for musicians, dancers, actors, poets, and visual artists working in the medium of structured improvisation.
