oso, Zs and Flockterkit

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
The evening's bill begins with oso, an eclectic trio headed by singer/songwriter Phil Taylor, known for his unique guitar work and quirky arrangements, which have been referred to as post-glitch folk art and organic traveling music.
The Zs (Sam Hillmer, Alex Mincek, Charlie Looker, Mathew Hough, Brad Wentworth, Ian Antonio) are a double trio--two saxophones, two guitars, two drummers--from New York. Working between the worlds of avant rock and new music, the Zs often explore the extremes of compositional complexity and virtuosity as well as extended repetition.
Chicago's own Flockterkit (Aram Shelton, Ernst Karel, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Jason Roebke, Frank Rosaly) includes some of the most vibrant improvisers and composers from the local experimental music scene. Featuring acoustic instruments and electronics, the group focuses on texture and electroacoustic composition.

Irregular Doublings
The MAVerick Ensemble
(Greg Anderson, percussion; Steve Butters, Percussion; Matthew Coley, percussion; Barbara Haffner, cello; Joshua Manchester, percussion; William Jason Raynovich, cello)

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
Under the title Irregular Doublings, this bill features MAVerick Ensemble percussionists and cellists in works by such diverse composers as American rock music icon Frank Zappa, electronic music icon Mario Davidovsky, Indonesian composer I Wayan Sadra, and MAVerick composer William Jason Raynovich. Each perfomer will have a chance to have the spotlight as a featured soloist in this exciting selection of pieces. The MAVerick Ensemble tries to bring unusual, rarely heard works to Chicago. This concert is no exception, with one world premiere and a couple of Chicago premieres alongside less familiar pieces by prominent composers of the 20th century. Zappa's famous or infamous Black Page will be a treat for all of the Zappa fanatics in Chicago. With all of the percussion music on this program, the evening will surely be one to remember.
