Presented by Nonsequitur. The remarkable Amsterdam-based cellist, composer and improviser Frances-Marie Uitti has pioneered a revolutionary dimension to the cello by using two bows in one hand, transforming it for the first time into a polyphonic instrument capable of sustained chordal and intricate multi-voiced writing, contemporaneous cross accents, multiple timbres, contrasting 4-voiced dynamics, and simultaneous legato/articulated playing. Tonight she performs works by Salvatore Sciarrino, Jonathan Harvey, Giacinto Scelsi, Lisa Bielawa, Annie Gosfield, György Kurtág, and her own Rap’t.
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.
