Seattle Scene: April 2-18, 2015

From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

Chapel Performance Space at Good Shepherd Center
4th Floor, 4649 Sunnyside Ave. N, Seattle 98103 (corner N 50th St. in Wallingford)

Every month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded presenters and artists offer ten concerts of adventurous music in an informal yet respectful setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences. All ages are welcome. All shows 8 PM, $5 – $15 sliding scale at the door unless otherwise noted (check individual listings).

Daria Binkwoski, solo flute
Thu. April 2, 7:30 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Flutist Daria Binkowski performs Salvatore Sciarrino’s seminal work for solo flute, L’Opera per Flauto, a 75-minute journey through the threshold of silence and sound. At once a work that is experimental, meditative and virtuosic, Sciarrino’s music might be described as “breathed intimacy”. This work is one of the foundations of contemporary flute music and rarely performed in its entirety in a live setting.

Mayumi Tayake, solo piano
Sat. April 4, 6:30 PM; $12 general, $5 students

Seattle-based pianist Mayumi Tayake plays Makrokosmos Volume II for amplified piano by George Crumb, followed by Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Pärt (with violinist Sharyn Peterson). The performance will be accompanied by projected images to enhance the listening experience.
