The Williams College Percussion Ensemble will present "barcode" at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 1, in Chapin Hall. This free event is open to the public.

The ensemble performs on an array of percussion instruments, from marimbas to wooden planks and disposable dinnerware on "barcode," a program of hidden codes and sonic maps.

At its center is Juan Felipe Waller’s "Plato Plastic Dialogues," a musical mapping of the topographical features of four disposable plastic plates.

A number of other works will also be performed.

The ‘62 Center is at 1000 Main St. on the college campus.
