New music isn't a new thing in L.A. The Monday Evening Concerts series has been presenting adventurous contemporary music — that avant-garde spinoff of classical music that's more about exploring the physical, cerebral, spatial and temporal possibilities of experimental sounds than reviving schmaltzy waltzes from ancient centuries — since 1939. Back then, the salon was led by European exiles Igor Stravinsky and Arnold Schoenberg, and later it hosted the U.S. debut of Pierre Boulez. Artistic director Jonathan Hepfer instigates MEC's new season by welcoming shape-shifting Italian composer Pierluigi Billone, Ensemble Vocatrix, soprano Anna Hauf and NYC's Talea Ensemble for "Fossil Voices," a program that contrasts excerpts from Hildegard von Bingen's reverential 12th-century incantation Ordo Virtutum with the West Coast premiere of Billone's Face.
