Zs, Alec Livaditis & Chelsea Dunn

Following the opening celebration for this year’s Spotlight on the Arts festival, Slingshot co-presents an avant-garde performance from New York City musicians Sam Hillmer and Patrick Higgins, the duo at the core of groundbreaking experimental outfit Zs. The group’s most recent album, Xe, out via boundary-pushing imprint Northern Spy, is dense and challenging, a churning, resolutely rhythmic LP. Also on the bill are area sound artists and cellists Alec Livaditis and Chelsea Dunn. Get a jump start on the Zs experience: At 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Hillmer will deliver an artist talk in lecture hall S150.
