Composer and instrument builder Phillip Arnautoff studied informally with Harry Partch in the 1960’s. His creative work is based on an expansion of Partch’s intonational system, but wedded to a very different and equally singular aesthetic. Tonight he performs Soliloquy, written for a Harmonic Canon (plucked zither) of 66 strings tuned in just intonation. Christopher Roberts presents his recent original compositions for the guqin, an ancient Chinese plucked zither with seven silk strings.
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.
