The reboot of Cosmos with Neil deGrasse Tyson is pretty fantastic…save for the soundtrack. If there were more imaginative sound designers at the helm of the show, Zelienople’s Mike Weis and clarinet soloist Alejandro Acierto would be on the track list. Seekers of music at the fringe will undoubtedly be hip to Zelienople, but Sunday’s Frequency Series show offers a unique look at one of the band’s more prolific members, percussionist Weis. Eschewing his musique concrète loops for a straight acoustic percussion set, all will be laid bare. Acierto will be previewing his upcoming full-length, amid these traces. If his 2013 EP, those prone to dysphasiatic utterances, is any indication, this will be one thermogenic show.
