mer is a new 40-minute piece for chamber orchestra that traces the many facets of human consciousness, awareness, and experience. This minimalist sound-painting by Seattle composer John Teske will be premiered by the Broken Bow Ensemble, a 26-piece group of strings and woodwinds. Guided by local tide data, the orchestra will slowly transform sound through time, unraveling layers of pitch and rhythm. Supported in part by the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture CityArtist Project.
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.
