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.
Medina/Walsh + Mará + Darto
Thu. Nov. 17, 7:30 PM; $10 at the door
Debacle Records celebrates Seattle duo Medina/Walsh’s new LP, Vault of Angels — atmospheric drone and industrial sounds with American primitive guitar and psych influences. Mára is the solo project of Faith Coloccia, highlighting her delicate piano and ethereal voice. Darto is a brother-sister-brother trio inspired by the creepy woods and rural farmland of their native Duvall.
Diad + Contact Cult + KillingFrenzy
Fri. Nov. 18, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door
Further Records’ final production of the year features three northwest musicians. DIAD is Timm Mason (Master Musicians of Bukkake, Mood Organ) and Chloe Harris (Raica) – oceanic drones, celestial vibrations, blooming melodies, euphoric wonder. Contact Cult (PDX’s Troy Micheau) brings devotional drones indebted to the transcendent spirit of early electronic music. Leo Mayberry is KillingFrenzy Visuals.
The Invisible Wind
Sat. Nov. 19, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door
Greg Campbell (percussion) and Beth Fleenor (clarinet, voice and percussion) join Butoh dance artist Vanessa Skantze for an evening of free improvisation. The actions of deep listening and intuitive visceral response provoke forms and sounds unforeseen; arising in twin spirals of experience and beckoned openness to the moment erupting out of time.
THU. 12/1 – Rahikka (Cason Rennekamp) – sound/video artist exploring ideas of color, movement, and repetition
FRI. 12/2 – Nonsequitur presents Smokestack Arias by Wayne Horvitz, with pianist Cristina Valdes and soprano Maria Mannisto
SAT. 12/3 – Brian Fergus & Rob Angus, electronic music with ukulele (!)
