Isabelle Duthoit & Franz Hautzinger

Fri., March 27, 8 p.m.

French clarinetist and vocalist Isabelle Duthoit traffics in extremes, pushing sound to its most febrile and violent or muting it down to a kind of astringent serenity. She opens Kochuu (Creative Sources), her recent collaborative album with bassist Alexander Frangenheim and percussionist Roger Turner, with unholy growls that wouldn’t sound out of place on a death-metal record, but she modulates her husky shouts and swoops in accordance with what her partners produce. Duthoit appears to consider her voice and clarinet inextricably linked tools of expression that achieve the same effects—she might shoot vocalic utterances through her reed instrument or make it flutter, whisper, and whine like a human’s most basic articulation. And she’s found a good partner in Austrian trumpeter Franz Hautzinger, another radical improviser who’s made his reputation shrugging off conventional tone in favor of unpitched columns of air, close-miked valve clacking, and exquisite manipulations of his mouthpiece that forge a subtle variety in timbre. —Peter Margasak $10, $8 students and members
