Seattle Scene: June 23 – July 7, 2018

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.

Anna Friz + Afroditi Psarra
Sat. June 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Anna Friz explores the expressive environment of low fidelity signal and physical landscapes, from interference-prone terrestrial radio beacons to sonic distillations of field recordings using radiophonic instruments and transmitters and cottage-built electronics, voice, and monochrome photo montage from recent fieldwork in northeastern Iceland and northern Chile. Afroditi Psarra works at the intersection of electronic textiles and physical computing with sound art.

CARL/Scrambler/Macaw/Neil Welch
Fri. July 6, 8:00 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

CARL is a baritone sax/drums duo from Houston (Danny Kamins and Andrew Durham) merging free jazz and doom metal. Scrambler is a large improvising ensemble conducted by Christian Pincock using the Sound Painting vocabulary of Walter Thompson.
