Seattle Scene: November 1-9, 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.

Body.Space.Time.Sound 4: Cube
Fri. Nov. 1, 8 PM; $15 at the door

Two pairs of sound artists (Tom Baker, Kate Olson), and movement artists (Alia Swersky, Corrie Befort) gradually merge from duets into quartet through moments of synchronicity, resonance, and overlaps of space. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but more than a two dimensional shape…a square, a rectangle… they become a cube: three dimension and six sided; four performers + audience + the space.
