get some rest, there's a 24 hour arts festival closing in on chicago, including plenty of sound-based performances, from the listening queen pauline oliveros to jazz king fred anderson.
chicago calling takes place from 12:01 am - 11:59 pm, wednesday, october 25th. that's CST, people, AND it's picasso's birthday*. throughout the day chicago-based artists will showcase work that involves collaboration with artists from all over the world. performances will take place in venues all over the city and through live feeds from faraway places too. if you're NOT attending the third coast festival conference i suspect this would be a fine way to spend some of your wednesday, october 25th, 2006.
*in honor of the day, maybe you'd like to play mr. picassohead?
