Spoke the Hub presents tenor saxophonist and composer David Bindman and his ensemble in the world premiere of “Tales of a Time Traveler,” to the performed at 7:30 p.m., May 18 at Spoke the Hub, 295 Douglass Street (between Third and Fourth avenues) on the Park Slope section of Brooklyn.

Bindman unveils his new ensemble that includes Bill Lowe (trombone and tuba), Royal Hartigan (drums), Wes Brown (bass), Nate Wooley (trumpet) and Art Hirahara (piano).

The title is based on a fantasy that Lucy, the hominid who lived 3.2 million years ago, travels through time to the present, giving us the opportunity to ask her, “Where did we go wrong? What should we have done differently? What do you see across the millions of years that can set us straight?”

The work explores many aspects of time: the process of merging “old and new” musical forms, rhythmic cycles and permutations influenced by the music of West Africa and India, and autobiographical experiences of waking into an often unrecognizable world (the self-described “Rip Van Winkle effect”).

Tickets are $15; $5 for students and seniors. For more, call 718-633-5037 or visit
