Åarhus Gallery, 50 Main St., will present an inspiring evening of music and poetry Saturday June 9 at 7:30 p.m. Dubbed Words and Music, it is a collaboration between four local poets and the electro-acoustic duo Algorithm.

Wordsmiths for the evening are Ellen Sander, author of “Back to the Garden” and the blog “Crackpot Chronicles”; Lauren Murray, author of the recently published “Hear if You Dare”; Joel Lipman, a professor at University of Toledo and author of “Chicago You Got A Wide Stance”; and current Belfast Poet Laureat Jacob Fricke, author of “This Book of Poems You Found.”

Algorithm is a new electro-acoustic duo comprised of Mike Whitehead on trumpet and flugelhorn, and Tom Luther on keyboards. The basic form of the group is supplemented by substantial use of electronic instruments, both live and sequenced. Both musicians are experienced jazz performers and use their improvising skills in the context of modern electronica and ambient music. The music itself is an amalgam of improvised material and electronic soundscapes crafted by both performers.

There will be a $8 suggested donation at the door; light refreshments are included. For more information, visit aarhusgallery.com.
