Dissatisfied with what she describes as the "templates and presets" associated with traditional music instruments, composer-violinist Pauchi Sasaki has constructed her own wearable instrument, a dress made out of small speakers that somehow wraps together sound and movement and air. Performing with bold flutist-vocalist Claire Chase, Sasaki calls up the eerie, echoing underwater bubbles of Gama XV in a performance that's simultaneously visually bizarre and musically dream-laden. Then, Gustavo Dudamel pulls the L.A. Phil New Music Group through the compulsive undulations of Frederic Rzewski's Coming Together, an almost jazzy fusion of piano and the stirringly radical, clear-eyed words of Attica prisoner Samuel Melville.
