For over twenty-five years, Jeph Jerman has been a seeker of sound. In 2010 he recorded a series of drone pieces using pot lids and metal bowls, played in the manner of Tibetan singing bowls. Titled arrastre, these were released as a three-part work on LP, CD-R, and cassette, and performed as a quartet in St. Paul, MN in 2012. Tonight it is performed by a septet of Jerman, Dave Knott, Doug Theriault, Mike Shannon, Esther Sugai, David Stanford, and Carl Lierman – a dense, shimmering wall of singing metal, rich in overtones and marked by gradual harmonic evolution.
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. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
