Saxophonist and composer Neil Welch celebrates the release of two new albums. Iron Creek was recorded live at various performances throughout 2010 and early 2011. A player of subtle and abrasive techniques alike, this acoustic, unedited album captures the unique style and fervent energy of Welch’s live shows. Sleeper is Welch’s first recorded major ensemble work, composed in response to a Human Rights First Report chronicling the death of an Iraqi inmate during the war in Iraq. The Sleeper Ensemble includes Neil Welch, saxophones; Ivan Arteaga, saxophones; Greg Sinibaldi, bass clarinet; Vincent LaBelle, trombone; David Balatero and Natalie Hall, cello.
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.
