Seattle Scene: October 19-27, 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.

Chris Icasiano & Lori Goldston
Fri. Oct. 19, 7:30 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Lori Goldston (cello) and Chris Icasiano (drums) will play solos and a duo set. Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, Goldston wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography. Icasiano’s chicken adobo is delicious, he has run three marathons, and his current karaoke go-to song is Luther Vandross’ “So Amazing.” Presented by Seattle Improvised Music Festival.

Hotel Neon + Marcus Fischer + Benoît Pioulard
Sat. Oct. 20, 7 PM; $15 – $15 at the door

Marcus Fischer (Portland) = Slowly unfolding melodies and warm tape saturated drones. Benoît Pioulard (Seattle) = remnants of pop song structures with the lushness and unpredictability of field recordings. Hotel Neon (Philadelphia) = immersive and atmospheric soundscapes, subtle melodies and improvisation aided by projected film and images.

WED. 10/23 – Earshot Jazz Festival presents Seattle saxophonist Neil Welch’s large ensemble work Concepcion Picciotto

FRI. 10/26 – pianist Jesse Myers and flutist Leanna Keith perform Nicole Lizée’s Tarantino Etudes

SAT. 10/27 – Triptet is Tom Baker
