Seattle’s newest ensemble dedicated to new music, Racketology, gives its first public performance with a program full of new works intended to reinvigorate excitement for experimental music. Ensemble members include Clifford Dunn (flute), Brianna Atwell (viola), Josiah Boothby (horn), Bonnie Whiting Smith (percussion), and Douglas Niemela (electric bass guitar). Included in the program are Mark Applebaum’s The Metaphysics of Notation; Brian Cobb’s D. & A.; Clifford Dunn’s Splinters; Evan Florey-Barnes’ The Nuances of Rachel; Doug Niemela’s Quintology (For Racketology); Jeremy Jolley’s Essai; and James Welsch’s Trio minus Mandy Patinkin.
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.
