Seattle Scene: November 7-16, 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.

Thu. Nov. 7, 8 PM; $10 – $20 at the door

Pneuma’s sound is kaleidoscopic – many worlds entangled – with extended techniques and layered effects blending with soulfulness and an exposed vulnerability. The instrumentation (3 clarinets + voice) is unusual and full of breath, allowing every band member to reimagine their role and find their ground in new and innovative ways. Rose G., James Falzone, Frankie Howe, Michael Winograd.

Satchel Henneman, guitar
Fri. Nov. 8, 8:00 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Satchel Henneman is a classical and improvising guitarist, performance artist and composer, and a recent graduate of Cornish, where he cultivated a strong relationship and foundation with the world of choreography and movement. Life is No Way to Treat an Animal, Part 3 is the third installment of his commission concerts, featuring new works by Tom Baker, Dayna Hanson, and Gregg Belisle-Chi.

Seattle Composers’ Salon
Sat. Nov. 9, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

The Seattle Composers’ Salon fosters the development, performance and appreciation of new music by regional composers and performers, featuring finished works, previews, and works in progress. Composers, performers, and audience members gather in a casual setting that allows for experimentation and discussion. Tonight: Carson Farley, Garrett Fisher, Satchel Henneman, Clement Reid.
