MusicNOW is a series of new music concerts curated by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s 2016–2018 Mead Composers-in-Residence Samuel Adams and Elizabeth Ogonek. Under direction by John Pobojewski, four unique illustrations were created for each concert along with a graphic system for flyers, digital advertisements and on-screen content within the venue. Posters were created to commemorate each performance, expertly crafted by Graphic Arts Studio and Artistry Engraving.
Steve Reich’s 80th Birthday honors the legendary composer and his technique of phasing rhythms over time. On the Edge of Silence concert features the world premiere of a violin concerto by Ogonek. Illuminating Boulez is a tribute to the legendary French composer Pierre Boulez. Ear Taxi Festival celebrates Chicago composers with a collage of architectural photography taken on a cellphone.
