Zanana shares the bill with Seth Meicht's large ensemble on the final concert of the 2007-2008 Rattlestick New Music Series, where "composers and improvisers come together to create new music drawing on many diverse traditions. From twentieth and twenty-first century European music and the American experimental impulse that confronts and interrogates convention to what some call sound-based composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. This process of bringing together different composers, musicians and audiences leads to a deeper understanding of our own group psychology and its influence on the creative product." 8pm, $10, Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, 224 Waverly Place, New York, NY.
