Live Music

Night of Contemporary Composition

When: Fri., April 28, 8 p.m.-12 a.m. 2017

Experimental music, in all of its various forms, is an acquired taste to be sure. Some come by their love for the avant-garde in music through theoretical concerns and in-depth study/practice. Others learn to love experimental music by tuning their ears to the weird and boundary-pushing, wherever they find it. Whichever of these categories you might fall into, or if you're still waiting to be seduced by the mind-expanding capabilities of outre aural stimulation, Ventura's “Night of Contemporary Composition” is a can't miss show. The all ages event will feature performances by the Dane Rousay/Cameron Taylor Duo (free jazz/improv featuring unconventional implements), Lisa Cameron (experimental composer/percussionist from ATX), the Jacob Bissell/Daniel Miller Duo (performing their percussion and electric guitar piece “Statement”), and Joseph Erik Montano (of local experimental noise/pop group The Freebiez fame).

Price: $5-$7
