Veteran new music ensembles the Kronos Quartet and Electric Phoenix joined forces Saturday evening at the Wadsworth Theater in an odd mix-and-match program. For lack of repertory, the results were not quite as intriguing as the combination of American string quartet and British vocal quartet suggested. Of greatest interest was the local premiere of "De Harmonium," by the extended vocal techniques master William Brooks.

A Los Angeles police task force has decided that a serial killer was probably not responsible for the death of Patricia L. Martin, whose body was found Thursday in Jesse Owens Park. That determination followed a coroner's report Saturday, finding that Martin died of a blow to the head and suffocation. Lt. John Zorn of the task force said the autopsy results did not reflect the usual methods of a man police believe has killed 15 prostitutes during the last two years.

A coalition dissatisfied with police efforts to capture a serial killer in South-Central Los Angeles said Thursday they will ask federal authorities to enter the investigation next week. "If these murders had happened in Beverly Hills, we would have seen much more progress," said Margaret Prescod, coordinator for the Black Coalition Fighting Back Serial Murders. "If police are having difficulty . . . it is past time to bring in other agencies."

Saxophonist Tim Berne is an honest, look-you-in-the-eye expressionist. His duo performance with bassist Michael Formanek as part of the New Music Monday series at LunaPark sometimes took the form of a confession as Berne, playing alto or baritone, seemed intent on revealing his every emotion. With the possible exception of John Zorn, Berne is the best-known saxophonist to come out of New York's downtown alternative scene.
