Seattle Scene: August 25 – September 2, 2016

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.

Green & Salo + Erin Jorgensen
Thu. August 25; 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Singer Rachel Green and composer Daniel Salo present a composition of voice piano and synthesis. The debut piece blends layers of choral music and electronics, creating an operatic installment of impassioned and surreal sounds. Erin Jorgenson plays narcotic marimba lullabies for adults.

Eric Frye + Raica + RM Francis
Fri. August 26; 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Composer Eric Frye presents the premiere of his six-channel electroacoustic piece, On Small Differences in Sensation, using a hybrid modular synthesizer and digital signal processing. Raica’s (Further Records founder Chloe Harris) synthetic abstractions drift through states of sunken resonance and crystalline lucidity with a dreamlike pulse. RM Francis is a computer musician living in Seattle.

Listening to Open Space
Aug. 27 & 28 (see below for times & locations)

Not at the Chapel, but of interest to Wayward fans! As part of the City of Seattle’s Put the Arts in the Parks program, The Seattle Phonographers Union does three concerts improvising with unprocessed field recordings collected in Seattle parks; each performance is preceded by a silent listening walk workshop. All events are free and open to all ages (please note the workshop will require 30 minutes of silence). Presented by Seattle Parks & Recreation.
