So Percussion, Dirty Projectors

Academy Hall Auditorium, Friday

Pretentious arthaus clowns, unite! Rensselaer’s Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC, whose physical

building is still one of the coolest nonentities we’ve seen) are presenting this show, which features two bright lights of

contemporary music. So Percussion, fresh off a tour with oddball avant-noise team Matmos, are a Brooklyn-based percussion

ensemble (naturally) who commission and perform new works from young composers; on tomorrow’s show, they’ll perform

compositions by David Lang and experimental-music godhead Steve Reich. Dirty Projectors is the nom de weird for Dave

Longstreth, whose performances feature a rotating cast of backing musicians coupled with live-video projection. If you

make a habit of listening outside the box, this is right up your alley. (Jan. 19, 8 PM, free, Rensselaer Polytechnic

Institute, Troy, 276-3921)
