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.

Don McGreevy / Skerik / Crystal Beth
Fri. Dec. 27, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Don McGreevy performs pieces from his forthcoming new album INSOUCIANCE using guitars, amplifiers, effects, looping devices, and percussion. SKERIK performs a new solo sax piece with digital delays and quad sound inspired by Steve Reich and Dickie Landry. Crystal Beth uses wailing vocals, amplified clarinet, beat-boxing and electronics to weave a sonic universe all her own.

Dangerknife
Sat. Dec. 28, 8 PM; $5 – $15 at the door

Dangerknife is Nico Sophiea (somesurprises) and Brad Rouda (Leviathan Worship Service) with special guests often sitting in. Focusing primarily on providing improvised soundtracks for silent and/or short films from the early and mid-1920s, tonight they accompany their own homemade short films comprised of painted and stressed out film/slides and ambient footage showing the slow passing of time.

Sat. 1/4 – Young Scientist – Seattle electronic music veterans Marc Barreca & James Husted reunite

Thu. 1/9 – Join us for post-solstice solace in the long night by way of a solo performance by A.F. Jones, songs of death and love from Rachel LeBlanc, and a new work for chamber ensemble by Noel Kennon.

Fri. 1/10 – A meeting of minds and spontaneous electrical impulses: Triptet (fretless guitar, saxophone, percussion, theremin, electronics) will join flutist and electronicist Anne La Berge – visiting from Amsterdam – on the third concert of a short bi-coastal US tour.

Sat. 1/11 – Seattle Phonographers Union
