For over twenty-five years, Jeph Jerman has been a seeker of sound. In 2010 he recorded a series of drone pieces using pot lids and metal bowls, played in the manner of Tibetan singing bowls. Titled arrastre, these were released as a three-part work on LP, CD-R, and cassette, and performed as a quartet in St. Paul, MN in 2012. Tonight it is performed by a septet of Jerman, Dave Knott, Doug Theriault, Mike Shannon, Esther Sugai, David Stanford, and Carl Lierman – a dense, shimmering wall of singing metal, rich in overtones and marked by gradual harmonic evolution.
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.
