Music for Seven Basketballs
Performed for the very first time in Chicago, "Music for Seven Basketballs" is a rhythmic meditation which draws on West African music, post-minimalism and, obviously, basketball. Created for Mocrep by New York based composer and bassist Michael Coltun, the piece was premiered at The Stone in 2017. Come out and experience the first show in Mocrep's brand new space!


Michael Coltun is a New York-based composer and bassist. In addition to performing around the world with his own prolific band, Les Rhinoceros, Coltun has toured with West African legend Cheick Hamala Diabaté since he was sixteen years old. Les Rhinoceros has released three critically acclaimed albums on John Zorns Tzadik label.

Mocrep is a collective creating radically experimental, interdisciplinary, and collaborative work. Equal parts music, performance art, video art, and movement, its varied and fluid practice reflects the complexity of contemporary culture and relationships. Its work subverts the rigid structures that circumscribe relations among artists and commodify the products of their labor, creating new possibilities for exchange among artists, artworks, and audiences.
Mocrep has presented work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Arts Club of Chicago, and was one of three ensembles to be invited to the prestigious Ferienkurse fuer Neue Musik Darmstadt in 2016. Its cultural partners in Chicago include Goethe-Institut Chicago, Lumpen Radio, Illinois Humanities Council, Parlour Tapes+, High Concept Laboratories, International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and Ensemble Dal Niente. Mocrep has held residencies at Mana Contemporary Chicago and dfbrl8r performance art gallery, and Stanford University.
