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.

#62: Joshua Limanjaya Lim

Synths, pianos, oscillators, wind chimes mangled and stretched to create slow-moving, meditative, lowfi ambient soundscapes.

#64: Robert Millis

Gramophones, cylinder players, feedback resonances, fragments of 78s, reconfigured surface noise, electric guitar, sho.

#66: Heather / Dio Duo

Violist Heather Bentley and drummer Dio Jean-Baptiste reunite in the Chapel for a session of dialed-in free improvisation.

#63: Doug Haire

Three pieces for drones soaked in ether, field recordings in the desert at the end of town, and larghissimo thinking inspired by.

#65: Gyre

Oscillators, feedback circuits, transducers, misused effects. Instability, unpredictable connections. Everything is next.

#67: Nital Etch

Desperation, for cello, lap steel guitar, synth/electronics. Dark neoclassical, ambient, drone seasoned with doom.
