Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Brook­lyn Rider, a string quar­tet of eclec­tic tastes, of­fers a con­cert in the Great Hall of Peter­son Stu­dent Cen­ter at St. John’s Col­lege (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca) at 7:30 p.m. on Fri­day, Sept. 11. The playlist in­cludes seven of the 13 pieces the mu­si­cians com­mis­sioned for their latest CD, is­sued a year ago, ti­tled The Brook­lyn Rider Al­manac. For that con­cept al­bum, each com­poser was asked to write a work “inspired by a cre­ative muse from rel­a­tively re­cent mem­ory.” Among the pieces slated for this con­cert are works inspired by au­thors John Stein­beck and Wil­liam Faulkner, re­spec­tively by Bill Frisell and Aoife O’Dono­van. Oth­ers are cel­e­bra­tions of funk founder James Brown (by Vi­jay Iyer), artist-ac­tivist Mierle La­der­man Uke­les (by Dana Lyn), sound artist Jens Mas­sel (by Glenn Kotche), jazz mu­si­cian Chick Corea (by Gon­zalo Grau), and a build­ing in Los An­ge­les (by Gabriel Ka­hane). Also on the bill is Schu­bert’s Rosamunde String Quar­tet. Tick­ets are $15, avail­able at the door only. For in­for­ma­tion, call 505-984-6000. — J.M.K.
