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: María Grand
Tue. Apr. 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 online/at door

One of the most exciting young voices to emerge from New York in recent years, Swiss/Argentine saxophonist, composer, and singer María Grand makes her Seattle debut. A solo performance created with writer and visual artist Satya Celeste, Persephone / HerStory retells the myth of Persephone, questioning typical depictions of her as passive and acknowledging the Persephone’s living in the here-and-now.

Sat. Apr. 27, 8 PM; $5 – 15 donation at door

Nonsequitur presents composer/cellist Ha-Yang Kim’s evening-length work inspired by the peripatetic quality of contemporary life. Through contrasting seamless sections of sonic and abstracted visual environments, TERMINALS is a contemplation of the transitory fleeting nature of time, motion and stillness. With award-winning composer Hahn Rowe (NYC), violist Heather Bentley, and video artist Scott Keva James.

Thu. 5/2 – Nonsequitur presents contemporary Danish chamber group Ensemble MidtVest in a concert of programmatic improvisations

Sat. 5/4 – The Sound Ensemble collaborates with songwriters Joseph de Natale, Michael Hamm, Lizzie Weber, and Tim Wilson
