Coming to Seattle

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 all-ages setting: contemporary classical, free improvisation, the outer limits of jazz, electronic music, microtonal/new instruments, sound art, and other extraordinary sonic experiences.

Earshot Jazz: Julia Hülsmann Trio
Fri. June 26, 8:00 PM; $18, $16, $9 in advance

Berlin-based Julia Hülsmann is renowned for her pristine technique and a breadth of creative influences ranging from Thelonious Monk to Emily Dickinson. She’s gaining international attention through two new records for the ECM label. On this rare North American tour, she is accompanied by bassist Robert Landfermann and drummer Heinrich Köbberling.

Brad Anderson + Greg Weber
Sat. June 27, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Brad Anderson plays keyboard-based electronica with a wide range of abstract sound textures that can go from a delicate whisper to an all out noise assault. Greg Weber concentrates on ambient soundscapes of reverb-drenched pianos, swirling electronics, radio static, and bass drone.

Bang on a Can Marathon Reviewed

From The New York Times:

A musician dropping an instrument during a performance would usually be cause for alarm. And at first, so it was, as the ensemble So Percussion played on Sunday during the Bang on a Can Marathon in the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan. The piece was Bobby Previte’s “Terminal 4,” and the four members of the group stood at the front of the stage, holding drumsticks in X formations above their heads, beating them in increasingly complex rhythms. Then a stick fell to the ground. The player hurriedly knelt to pick it up and continued with the rhythm. Order was restored. Then another person’s stick fell, and another, and another.
