For its season finale, Seattle Modern Orchestra presents two pieces where the ideas and emotions unique to the visual arts are transformed into music. To start the program, French composer Hugues Dufourt‘s L’Asie d’aprés Tiepolo (2009) reflects on Italian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s Allegory of the Planets and Continents (1752), while the second half features the celebrated Rothko Chapel (1971) by American composer Morton Feldman.
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.
