From Seattle’s Wayward Music Series:

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: Nate Wooley & Paul Lytton
Tue. Oct. 27; 8 PM; $16, $14, $8 advance

American trumpeter Nate Wooley teams with British free jazz percussionist Paul Lytton to form a textural, avant-garde duo. Wooley impresses with virtuoso playing, creating lush, minimalistic sounds with electronics and obscure tones. Lytton is a legendary player who incorporates a clutter of objects like water, a flour sifter, and wooden blocks into his kit playing.

Akiyama/Eubanks/Kahn/Nakamura
Fri. Oct. 30; 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar), Bryan Eubanks (saxophone, electronics), Jason Kahn (drums, percussion) and Toshimaru Nakamura (no-input mixing board) fuse free improvisation, noise, experimental electronics and the uncategorizable in a fresh and vibrant approach to group playing and spontaneous music creation. Presented by Nonsequitur. Supported by the Japan Foundation through the Performing Arts JAPAN program.

Nakatani Gong Orchestra
Thu. Oct. 29; 8 PM; $5 – $15 at door or online

Japanese percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani leads the Seattle version of his Nakatani Gong Orchestra, which builds community ensembles performing on multiple bowed gongs under his direction. For each show, he gives specialized training to locally selected players. Each player is able to quickly learn about the gong instruments, playing techniques, and conducting signs.
