Saxophonist and composer Jacob Zimmerman is a graduate of Garfield High School in Seattle, and studied at the renowned New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. He is currently a Masters Composition student at Mills College. Most recently he has been focused on a collection of solo pieces that highlight the various techniques and improvising strategies that have comprised his musical vocabulary over the years, hoping to refine his own language and improvising tendencies, while constantly seeking a balance between structure and the freedom to pursue (as Derek Bailey called it) “whatever is endlessly variable.”
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.
