California-based sound artist Jen Boyd records sounds in her environment and arranges them into layered soundscapes, using contact microphones to explore the textures and timbres in trees and other found objects. Some sounds unfold naturally while others are processed. While her work mostly relies on ‘natural’ sounds she uses a wide variety of sound sources to paint sonic pictures for the listener. Seattle’s own Susie Kozawa shares the evening, with her witty blend of found objects and homemade instruments.
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.
