One of Atlanta’s contemporary music ensembles is inviting you out for a drink. Chamber Cartel is about to begin a six-concert series at Orpheus Brewing in Midtown. They’ll be performing works by Iannis Xenakis, John Luther Adams and other composers in a series they’re calling “Don’t Look Back: Beyond the Zero.” 

There may not be an obvious connection between contemporary classical music and craft beer, but as it turns out, both entities go way back.

If you’re a fan of percussion, this story is for you.

The Atlanta-based contemporary chamber ensemble Chamber Cartel is performing a piece for six percussionists. And they’re using an instrument that the musicians had to build themselves. Reporter Myke Johns joined the ensemble as they rehearsed at the Goat Farm Arts Center to perform "Pleiades" by modern composer Iannis Xenakis.
