        Sunday, Nov. 29, 2010 - 2 pmUniversity City Library6701 Delmar Blvd

        HEARding Cats Collective - St. Louis' newest presenter and producer of daring artistic expression - kicks off its concert season with an afternoon of avant-pop, inspired movement, and just plain weird fun with the tory z starbuck band.

        tory z starbuck has been challenging St. Louis' preconceptions for 30 years, and shows no signs of stopping now. Recently featured in a St. Louis Magazine full-length interview, the polymath will bring a bizarre blend of electronic and ethnic sounds to the stage, and create an evolving soundscape full of unpredictable twists. starbuck routinely provides music for dance ensembles around St. Louis, and will be joined in this performance by a small company of live dancers coordinated bySandy Busken.

        The multi-instrumentalist ensemble uses unconventional, often self-created instruments. Even when they resort to familiar instruments, the group manages to use them in unconventional ways. starbuck is joined by Venus Slick, Dr. Bruce McLaughlin, Tony Engelhardt, and dr. mabuse.

        Hearding Cats is an artists collective devoted to producing artistic events mostly in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. . It was founded on 11/11/2009 by husband and wife team, Rich ODonnell and Anna Lum.

        Rich and Anna had a combined 80 years of experience administering the St. Louis New Music Circle when they established Hearding Cats.

        Their zeitgeist permeates the policies and methods of the Collective. These necessarily evolve in the ceaselessly changing cultural environment. But the core values of the collective are :

        -Respect for the fundamental value of art to all societies.

        -Recognition that art needs innovation and experimentation to remain vital. This means we support for art that is ignored by traditional, commercial, and popular institutions.

        -Support for educational role of the artist.
