Saxophonist Neil Welch performs music from his new full-length solo album Twelve Tiny Explosions, released on the local label Table and Chairs Music. Cluster, mute, smear, rangy, scream, coo, blast – Welch is an active mover of modern improvisation. Approaching the instrument as more a textural tool, tonight’s performance will be inspired by the unique sound of the Chapel. Chris Icasiano, one of Seattle’s most inventive drummers and a longtime collaborator with Welch in the duo Bad Luck, opens with a set of solo drums.
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. Watch a video clip about us on the Seattle Channel.
