Seattle Scene: August 22 – September 7, 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.

Bassett/Lubelski + Suzuki/Karusbauer + Kelley/Millis
Thu. Aug. 22, 8 PM; $8 – $15 donation at door

Marcia Bassett (guitar) and Samara Lubelski (violin) have extensive backgrounds in the East Coast/NYC sub-underground. Kaori Suzuki (electronics) and John Krausbauer (violin) present music for voices, amplified strings, electronics, and bell percussion. Rob Millis (guitar, Climax Golden Twins) and Greg Kelley (trumpet, nmperign) have performed twice as a duo. The third time is the proverbial charm.

Aaron Michael Butler + Bonnie Whiting
Fri. Aug. 23, 8 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

Athens, Ohio-based percussionist, composer, and educator Aaron Michael Butler performs works recently composed for him by Nick Zammuto (of The Books), Brian Harnetty, and Rob Funkhouser; and David Gibson’s Lillian Brook, a ground-breaking, nearly-lost vibraphone solo from 1973. Local percussion ace Bonnie Whiting opens, and the two will also play duo improvisations.

Kyte Mica + Peter Colclasure
Sat. Aug. 24, 7 PM; $5 – $15 donation at door

Composer/pianists Kyte Mika (Seattle) and Peter Colclasure (San Jose, CA) play solo sets, aiming for a soothing, ambient, and beautiful sonic landscape. Peter Colclasure has released two albums with traces of Bach, Philip Glass, Debussy, and Olafur Arnalds. Kyte Mika combines influences from post-classical, ambient, and electronic genres to evoke distinct and fascinating narratives.

Thu. 9/5 – After 16 years of musical collaboration, drummer Ted Poor and trumpeter Cuong Vu come together in a rare duet setting to celebrate new beginnings.

Sat. 9/7 – Gift Tapes/DRAFT presents Jason E Anderson’s new work CORM (Consequences of Recursive Memory) + a new computer synthesis work by RM Francis
