May­hem Emerg­ing Arts un­veils its fall se­ries of con­certs at the not-for­profit or­ga­ni­za­tion’s south­side space (2811 Siler Lane) — per­form­ers in­clude David Dunn, Roland, and the Thollem McDonas Duo. The se­ries — with nearly 20 acts per­form­ing each Satur­day night at 7 p.m. through Oct. 16 — com­bines lights, video pro­jec­tion, live in­stru­men­tal per­for­mance, and live im­pro­vi­sa­tional elec­tronic mu­sic.

On Sun­day, Sept. 26, pi­anist John Ran­gel takes on the mas­ter­ful Os­car Peter­son (right) in the lat­est of the Cal Haines Trib­ute Trio se­ries. Last May, the trio — Ran­gel, drum­mer Haines, and bassist Michael Glynn — be­gan the se­ries of 11 monthly con­certs fo­cus­ing on the mu­sic of jazz-pi­ano lu­mi­nar­ies. Cana­dian pi­anist Peter­son, who died in 2007, was pro­lific and vir­tu­osic, known for his preter­nat­u­ral speed and tech­nique. The Sun­day con­cert be­gins at 6 p.m. at La Casa Sena Cantina, 125 E. Palace Av­enue. The cover charge is $20; call 988-9232. In­spired by am­bi­ent techno, 8-bit Amiga pro­grams, and weather pat­tern data, Ja­son Corder (aka offthesky) cre­ates a rhyth­mic strain of elec­tronic mu­sic. Den­ver-based Corder is known for his “paint­ing sound” set-ups. It is an in­ter­ac­tive per­for­mance art in which the au­di­ence si­mul­ta­ne­ously paints and cre­ates mu­sic via mi­cro­phones and sen­sors at­tached to their can­vases. He ap­pears in a live video­cast at Lit­tle Wing, The Candyman (851 St. Michael’s Drive), along with Pil­lars and Tongues, Aaron Martin, and Sim­ple Spells play­ing live on Sun­day, Sept. 26. The show starts at 8 p.m., ad­mis­sion is $5; call 603-8321 or visit www.can­dy­man­lit­tlew­ing.com. Few in­ter­na­tional mu­si­cal stars tai­lor a recital for a spe­cific book­ing, but that is pre­cisely what mezzo-so­prano Su­sanne Mentzer has done for her con­cert at 7:30 p.m. on Tues­day, Sept. 28, pre­sented by the Santa Fe Con­cert As­so­ci­a­tion at the United Church of Santa Fe (1804 Ar­royo Chamiso Road). There’s a rea­son: Mentzer went to St. Michael’s High School in the 1970s and took her first steps as a mu­si­cian here. For this visit home, she sings clas­sic songs by Schu­bert, Strauss, and Falla as well as a set com­posed by Stephen Bachicha to po­ems by Va­lerie Martínez — New Mex­i­cans both. Tick­ets, $30, are avail­able from Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (988-1234, www. tick­etssantafe.org) and from the SFCA of­fice at 984-8759.
