May 2. Neither Laurie Anderson nor Pauline Oliveros are strangers to EMPAC; both of these monumentally adventurous composers have previously performed at the cutting-edge arts center, and Oliveros has long served as a professor of practice in the arts department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, EMPAC's parent college. But a program that brings the two of them together? Wow. "The Films of Laurie Anderson" is a two-part event that begins with a screening of several of Anderson's film and video works and concludes with her and Oliveros, who turns 81 in May, performing live to the screening of a silent film. Certainly not anything you should miss. (Ryoichi Kurokawa's audiovisual work "syn_" appears May 3; the Albany Symphony Orchestra headlines the American Music Festival from May 30 to June 2.) 5pm. Check website for ticket prices. Troy.

Speaking of...

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
