Nonsequitur presents composer Frederic Rzewski in a rare US appearance. Living in Belgium for the past 30 years, Frederic Rzewski is one of America’s great maverick composers and a virtuoso pianist whose music freely combines elements of minimalism, atonality, improvisation, folk songs, and political texts. Rzewski was a co-founder, with Alvin Curran and Richard Teitelbaum, of MEV (Musica Elettronica Viva), a group known for its pioneering work in live electronics and improvisation. Program: War Songs (2008 – first performance), Johnny Has Gone for a Soldier (2003), Mayn Yingele (1988), and Four Pieces (1977).Seattle Times article here.
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.
