Seattle Scene: July 20-27, 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.

Earshot’s 2nd Century: Ramen Trio
Thu. July 20, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door
Earshot’s Jazz: the 2nd Century series continues. Veteran Seattle musicians Jay Weaver (drums), Doug Lilla (bass), and James DeJoie (clarinet, bass clarinet), are the Ramen Trio. They use the combination of composition and improvisation to make music in the moment and hopefully capture the listener’s imagination. The trio sometimes improvises on forms, but also relishes making up a form as they go along.

Laraaji & Arji OceAnanda
Sat. July 22, 8 PM; $15 advance, $20 at door
Laraaji’s classic 1979 Eno-produced album Day of Radiance put him and his electric open-tuned zither on the global music stage. Laraaji performs new music with modified electric zither/harp, voice, kalimba, and electronics. He is accompanied by longtime collaborator healing sound musician Arji OceAnanda, who shares her heart space through a variety of gentle percussion and electronic instruments.
