Presented by Nonsequitur. Seattle’s venerable Indonesian classical percussion ensemble Gamelan Pacifica, directed by composer and Cornish professor Jarrad Powell, presents Crosscurrents: traditional styles and new directions in gamelan music. They will be joined by renowned Javanese musician and composer Sutrisno Hartana for a program of traditional and contemporary music from Java and the US, including Sutrisno’s composition Ganjil, recently commissioned by Gamelan Pacifica as part of a project celebrating 25 years of gamelan in Seattle.
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.
