Seattle Scene: March 28 – April 6, 2019

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.

FHTAGN + Nital Etch + Blood Rhythms
Thu. Mar. 28, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

FHTAGN is an experimental chamber ensemble employing non-traditional means of scoring and conduction, often using large groups and spatial dispersion. Nital Etch is cello and synth-based ambient drone and post-classical. Blood Rhythms (Chicago transplant Arvo Zylo) began as a brass/drone ensemble, evolving into a synth and junk-metal collective focused on studio work, minimal trios and more dense sonic concepts.

Inverted Space: Twin Peaks / Partch
Fri. Mar. 29, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

Inverted Space presents a reinterpretation of the music from Twin Peaks. The concert will feature a handful of the Harry Partch instruments and draw upon different elements of improvisation. The goal will be to produce a new sound to an already innovative score.

Thu. 4/4 – choreographer Iván Espinosa and sound artist Rocco Strain present SKINESPHERES: Somatic Ecologies in a More-Than-Human World – a striking integration of Deep Ecology, electroacoustic sound art and experimental dance inviting the audience to consider the connection(s) between sensorium and ecosystem, the body and the earth.

Fri. 4/5 – Bodies.Space.Time.Sound – an evening of improvisation consisting of 4 sound and 4 movement artists joining together in sets of chance occurrences curated by Tom Baker & Alia Swersky

Sat. 4/6 – clarinetist and composer James Falzone presents his meditative solo work, Sighs Too Deep For Words, plus new compositions for his Tao Trio pianist Wayne Horvitz and bassist Abbey Blackwell
