Presented by Nonsequitur, Earshot Jazz, & Polestar, supported by the French-American Jazz Exchange and administered by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation and Cultural Services of the French Embassy. The East-West Collective is a trans-national collaboration exploring the intersection of Asian traditions with the compositional structure and sounds of free jazz, with Larry Ochs (sax), Miya Masaoka (koto), Didier Petit (cello), Sylvain Kassap (clarinet), and Xu Fengxia (guzheng). Opening set is the duo of German saxophonist/multimedia artist Alfred 23 Harth and Vancouver-based, German 5-string bass player Torsten Mueller.
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.
