Inverted Space presents a long piece doubleheader from Seattle-based composers Yiğit Kolat and Kevin Baldwin. A single impulse constitutes the core of Yiğit Kolat’s Messenger of Sorrows: the sound of a rocket hitting a Kurdish house, recorded by the survivors during the curfew imposed on the southeastern town of Cizre in September 2015 by the Turkish government. The imaginary resonances of a destroyed room evolve throughout the piece, affecting all aspects of the music including the score, which becomes a deformed, contorted image that does not communicate musical parameters anymore but impresses a burning, bleeding horizon. Kevin Baldwin’s ici, (291) foi et amour uses graphic notation to explore time-space in a non-linear way.
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.
