Paul Dresher Ensemble: 1-2, 1-2 at Z Space
For 20 years, the Paul Dresher Ensemble's Electro-Acoustic Band has integrated the traditional instruments of chamber music (violin, woodwinds) with modern instruments and technology (electric guitar, electronic percussion, synthesizers). The  Electro-Acoustic Band (EAB) performs contemporary chamber music that crosses traditional aesthetic boundaries and styles.

These concerts feature the EAB performing two world premieres by local composers commissioned by the Dresher Ensemble:

Jack Perla -  "Pretty Boy" - with text by David Brock (based on the life and stories about gangster Pretty Boy Floyd)
Fred Frith - "Rocket Science"

Also on the program (which will be the same each night) are two recently commissioned works for the Electro-Acoustic Band:

Ryan Brown - "Gangbusters" (2010, revised 2012)
Bruce Pennycook - "For Joe Z" (2010)

The program would not be complete without a piece by the founder of the Ensemble, Paul Dresher:

Paul Dresher - Chorale Times Two
