Wayward in Limbo Recordings

Source: Wayward Music Series.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve been considering how we can most directly assist the artists who inhabit our particular niche of the Seattle music community.

With the Chapel closed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wayward Music Series now moves from the concert hall to the living room. In place of our usual ten monthly concerts, Nonsequitur is curating and commissioning ten Seattle artists each month to create a series of streaming audio sessions of exclusive material. Many of these will be essentially “live” performances recorded at home for this occasion. Others may create a mix of pre-recorded material that has not been previously released elsewhere.

These tracks are available to stream at no charge on SoundCloud via the links below, and will be promoted like our concerts via our weekly e-newsletter, our Facebook group, and our Twitter feed. The artists retain all rights to their recordings. We strongly encourage you to visit their web sites and purchase their recordings or contribute to their personal crowdfunding campaigns.

This series will continue for as long as we are unable to use the Chapel for performances.

Wayward in Limbo 12: Marina Albero
Barcelona-born pianist and composer Marina Albero graces us with this set of bold and beautiful solo improvisations for piano and hammer dulcimer expressing the many intense feelings she’s experienced recently.

Wayward in Limbo 13: Beth Fleenor
Beth Fleenor (aka Crystal Beth) lets loose with a whirlwind of clarinet, post-verbal glossolalia and ferocious human beat boxing. Inside Outside is a release of intense emotions, the transformation of demons into angels.

Wayward in Limbo 14: Lori Goldston

Free-range cellist Lori Goldston shares Yellowstone Score, a solo improvisation for amplified cello made for an experimental video installation by maverick auteur Jon Jost. A world of drone in which time is irrelevant.
