The Wandelweiser group continues to circle the islands of New York City without establishing a permanent outpost. In a sense this is appropriate for music that is quiet, spacious, and penumbrous, meant to carry meaning though a ghostlike presentation.

An important figure in the group, pianist Dante Boon, will make a fleeting visit Friday evening at Glenn Cornett’s Spectrum performance space, now relocated across the East River to the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Boone will play La présence, les silences, from the important Wandelweiser composer and musician Jürg Frey. But the concert will go beyond Wandelweiser, with a range of music that marks out some of the possibilities of complementary post-minimalism, through Tom Johnson’s Triangle de Pascal modulo sept, and pieces by Dean Rosenthal and Michael Vincent Waller.

Dante Boon plays 8:30 p.m. Friday at Spectrum. facebook/spectrum
