The International Composers Pool (ICP) Orchestra, pictured here, doesn't just invent music in the moment, it plays with the idea of how that music gets made. Mischievous, zany, fox-quick and witty, all the players in this 44-year-old Dutch tentet can tap dance on a dime. (Sadly, pianist and composer Misha Mengelberg left the tour earlier this week for health reasons.) Whether bearding the classics with hippity-hoppity horns or playing ineffably beautiful sustains on violin, cello and bass, ICP always offers something you didn’t expect. Why? Because you never heard it before. ICP performs at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Seattle Art Museum, Volunteer Park, Seattle; $10-$20 (206-547-6763 or earshot.org).
