To understand the music of composer David Dominique, shuffle a playlist that features Charles Mingus, Sun Ra Arkestra, and Igor Stravinsky, then add in a few tracks from Sonic Youth. Known for his rhythmically complex and emotionally provocative avant-garde compositions, the Richmond-based William & Mary professor is so versatile that his work ranges from writing for a jazz octet to performing at Coachella, plus scoring the experimental theater work Starcrosser’s Cut, “a fictional, dreamlike reconstruction of the police interview after the arrest of infamous NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak.” The David Dominique Ensemble will perform music from its new release, Mask.

Sunday, November 11. $20-25, 7pm. Brooks Hall, UVA. 249-6191.
