Dubbing new music styles “experimental” can make even the most obnoxious concoction of sounds appear avant-garde. Zack Kouns from America and Rory Hinchey from Canada are doing just that by showcasing their recent experiments in the program called “The Consequences of a Dynamic Lifestyle.”

Although here “dynamic” doesn’t translate into rhythmic work-out beats, Kouns combines saxophone, violin, flute and vintage synthesizers with atonal melodies, often resembling chanting or a “cry of the soul.” Hinchey presents unexpected blend of sounds, at times resembling ethnic motifs.

Sun, Jan. 29, 7:30 p.m., club-restaurant “Divan,” 2 Bessarabska Square, 235-73-66, tickets: Hr 30-50.
