KALAMAZOO—Minimalist performance duo skewed and such, comprised of percussionist Trevor Saint and laptop performer Jeff Herriott, will perform a recital of their original compositions at 2 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20, in the Dalton Center Recital Hall. A master class with the performers will immediately follow the concert; both events are free and open to the public.

Skewed and such performs original and ethereal semi-improvisational works for glockenspiel and electronics that focus on real-time exchanges between instrumental and computer performers. The interplay between the performers in real-time allows both Saint and Herriott to explore subtle details within a single sound or musical idea, a concept that is central to their individual careers and has united their work as a duo.

The two have performed together at the 2011 Percussive Arts Society International Conference; Spectrum NYC; University of Wisconsin–Whitewater; MUSE-Fest in Madison, Wisconsin; University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee; Project Lodge; and Denison’s Tutti Festival.
