What: Fulton Market Kitchen “5×5” Art Series with Grammy Nominated Producer The Twilite Tone Creating Live Album with Artist Chadwick’s Live Art
Where: Fulton Market Kitchen (311 N Sangamon St.)
When: Monday April 20th – Friday April 24th
Details: 5×5 is taking live performance art to the next level with The Twilite Tone who has produced for artists such as Kanye West, who will be creating a live album in conjunction with acclaimed artist Chadwick as he creates a painting that mirrors the entire process.
“Chadwick and The Twilite Tone will now combine forces in the form of a new conceptual performance piece in which they create a live, on site EP, specific for Fulton Market Kitchen. Everything is done D.I. (direct-in), so each song will be heard as solitary threads throughout their tenure in the space. In this way, they become a part of the space and the space feeds on their creation process. As they record each track, an “On Air” light will be turned on signaling the recording process. The project will culminate on April 24th when the originally seemingly singular elements of each song will blend into an amazing 4 song EP to be played by The Twilite Tone.
Chicagoan, The Twilite Tone has provided production for Kanye West, John Legend, Big Sean, Pusha T, and many others. He was a huge component in the creation of Common’s first three albums and co-wrote three tracks on Kanye West’s Cruel Summer album including the lead single “Mercy” which reached No.1 on Billboard’s US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and and went 2x Platinum along with “Don’t Like”, and many more. He is also credited with giving fellow award-winning producer and Kanye West mentor No I.D. his stage name.
Chadwick has quickly gained notoriety after starting as a live performance artist in clubs and various parties across Chicago. This notoriety has lead to performances and tours with such notable musicians as the Chicago Afrobeat Project, London’s Lady Sovereign, and Chicago’s own The Cool Kids. He has also demonstrated his tribal/urban themes in large non-traditional mediums, such as being commissioned by Perry Farrell to paint a 1970 Buick Convertible live at Lollapalooza or being hired by Fiat to draw attention at the Chicago Auto Show. As an artist Chadwick believes in capturing the moment, whether it’s on stage, at a basement party, or alone in his studio
