Kin of the Moon’s show What Better Than Call a Dance is inspired by the relationship of dance to music; how music informs dance and dance informs music. We’ll be collaborating with Beth Fleenor on clarinet, vocals, electronics and Karin Stevens; the two will interweave a series of improvisations interspersed with four new takes on some pre-existing dance music forms composed by Kaley Lane Eaton and Heather Bentley, performed by Kin of the Moon (Leanna Keith, flute, Heather Bentley, violin/viola, Kaley Lane Eaton, soprano/piano/electronics). A hybrid of through-composed and improvised music, the retrospective/reworking includes Eaton’s 22 which is a quasi-jig; Bentley’s Waltz for Three and Conventillo, a backward look at tango music and lyrics, and Eaton’s Hildegard of Bingen-triggered EDM piece.
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 (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
