Coming to Seattle

From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

Mark Hosler + Noel Brass, Jr.
Thu., April 17, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Negativland co-founder Mark Hosler ditches the band but steals their boopers for a solo set of highly idiosyncratic homemade low-fi electronic noise. Seattle’s Noel Brass, Jr. (Afrocop) dons his Soulgazer hat, playing improvisational psych-ambient soundscapes inflected with twisted bits of gospel, jazz, sci-fi and film noir.

DX ARTS & UW Composers
Sat., April 19, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

An evening of electronic music featuring a variety of new works for electronics, video, and interactive media. Included are new and recent works by Hector Bravo Benard, Marcin Pączkowski, Abe King, Josh Archibald-Seiffer, Jeff Bowen and Gérard Pape.

Carlson + Kurek + Suzuki
Fri., April 18, 8 PM; $5 – 15 at the door

Portland’s Matt Carlson (Golden Retriever), Warsaw-based Piotr Kurek, and Seattle’s Kaori Suzuki mine varied and virtuosic takes on electronic music; timeless yet very contemporary, often turning the idea of “electronic music” inside out, going against expected tropes. Three uncompromising, singular approaches.
Upcoming Events (subject to change)

FRI. 4/25 – Jay Hamilton & the Turtling Dithers: Love Songs & Other Fairy Tales
SAT. 4/26 – Ivan Arteaga & Kromer, music for saxophone quartet
