Polestar & Earshot Jazz present English soprano and tenor saxophonist John Butcher, whose circular breathing, multiple trills, multiphonics, and other astonishing techniques create the impression of a multitude of voices and minds at work. Joining him are two great musicians from Vancouver, BC: German bassist Torsten Mueller has radically departed from the sometimes limiting traditional sound of, and approach to, the double bass with an array of extended techniques that continually push the music in new directions. Percussionist extraordinaire Dylan van der Schyff brings masterful chops and scintillating sensitivity to a wide range of musics, from small-group jazz to big band extravaganzas to free improvisation.
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.
