Seattle Scene: August 23-31, 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.

Plancklength, Morher, Noel Kennon
Thu. Aug. 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Electroacoustic works presented in six-channel surround sound. Plancklength (Jeff Anderson, Chloe Wicks, Blake DeGraw): sound as physical phenomenon and music as three-dimensional construct. Morher is Seattle/Chicago multimedia artist Ambrosia Bardos: vocalization, biometric data, analog manipulation. Noel Kennon is a composer/performer/improviser from Tennessee: indeterminacy, stochasticity, and microtonality.

Radon Daughters & guests
Fri. Aug. 24, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Radon Daughters (Patrick Neill Gundran, Clifford Dunn, Blake DeGraw, horridus) + Butoh artist Kaoru Okumura: interaction of sound, movement and light without expectation, the goal is no goal. Caspar Sonnet (Portland): lap steel, dobro, harmonica, percussion, pre-war blues, world music, minimalism. Adam Levitt: saxophone/electronics somewhere between noise, drone, ambient and free jazz.

THU. 8/30 – French horn maestro Tom Varner plays late summer improvisations with various instrumentalists and phonographers

FRI. 8/31 – Rest & Digest – ambient, spoken word, etc. with Dog Sister (Lauren Moore & Vida Rose) + Ashley Erickson + SoundBath + Nick Tombs + Mystical Orchid
