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: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
