Inverted Space presents a long piece doubleheader from Seattle-based composers Yiğit Kolat and Kevin Baldwin. A single impulse constitutes the core of Yiğit Kolat’s Messenger of Sorrows: the sound of a rocket hitting a Kurdish house, recorded by the survivors during the curfew imposed on the southeastern town of Cizre in September 2015 by the Turkish government. The imaginary resonances of a destroyed room evolve throughout the piece, affecting all aspects of the music including the score, which becomes a deformed, contorted image that does not communicate musical parameters anymore but impresses a burning, bleeding horizon. Kevin Baldwin’s ici, (291) foi et amour uses graphic notation to explore time-space in a non-linear way.
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.
