Presented by Nonsequitur. One of downtown NYC’s great, unsung guitar heroes, Chris Cochrane’s raw, angular guitar style embraces a gamut of tender, bluesy lyricism and harsh noise. Tonight he performs music from his new CD, Them (Tzadik), composed for a 1985 performance with choreographer Ishmael Houston-Jones and writer Dennis Cooper. Climax Golden Twins is the inscrutable and ever-morphing sonic beast animated by Rob Millis and Jeffrey Taylor. Together, individually and with others, they push the definition of a “band” to its limits, making live movie soundtracks, gallery installations, weird ethnographic films, and deeply immersing themselves in the dusty, crackling grooves of old 78s.
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.
