Seattle Scene: February 9-18, 2017

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.

Loscil + B. Pioulard + bardo:basho
Thu. Feb. 9, 8 PM – THIS SHOW IS SOLD OUT!

Loscil (Scott Morgan) is an ambient/electronic project exploring the marriage of electronic production and acoustic instrumentation. Benoît Pioulard (Thomas Meluch) seeks to create a unique sonic environment influenced by pop song structures and the unpredictability of field recordings. Bardo:Basho (Kirsten Thom) composes loop-based music designed to create a sense of stasis and a state of hypnosis.

Pod Blotz + Bloom Offering + Cruel Diagonals
Fri. Feb. 10, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door
Pod Blotz (Suzy Poling) is Los Angeles multimedia artist Suzy Poling, who uses sound, video/film, visual and performance art to explore the interferences between optics, mirrors, sonic resonance, electrical synthesis, human/alien identities and geological anomalies. Opening are local acts, Bloom Offering (industrial electronic solo project of Nicole Carr) and Cruel Diagonals (vocalist and field recordist, Megan Mitchell).

Noisegasm + Anderson + Goldenrod + Unser Verhaengnis
Sat. Feb. 11, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Noisegasm combine elements of Industrial, Ambient, Rock and Soundtracks styles to create Weapons Grade Electronica. Brad Anderson composes abstract soundscapes that not so gently unmoor the listener from reality. Goldenrod plays ambient drones highlighted with occasional melodic touches on guitar, synthesizer and harmonica. Unser Verhängnis builds minimal walls of textural ambiance.

FRI. 2/17 – Inverted Space Ensemble plays various new and recent compositions

SAT. 2/18 – Melanie Voytovich & Friends play new works by local composers for percussion & cello
