Nonsequitur presents composer Frederic Rzewski in a rare US appearance. Living in Belgium for the past 30 years, Frederic Rzewski is one of America’s great maverick composers and a virtuoso pianist whose music freely combines elements of minimalism, atonality, improvisation, folk songs, and political texts. Rzewski was a co-founder, with Alvin Curran and Richard Teitelbaum, of MEV (Musica Elettronica Viva), a group known for its pioneering work in live electronics and improvisation. Program: War Songs (2008 – first performance), Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier (2003), Mayn Yingele (1988), and Four Pieces (1977).Seattle Times article here.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
