In Violin, Viola & Video Virtuosity, each work was created expressly for Karen Bentley Pollick and explores the synergy of video and solo strings: world premieres of Jeffrey Harrington’s Grand Tango for violin with video by the composer; Seattle composer Nat Evans’ and video artist Erin Elyse Burns’ desertscape Heat Whispers; and New York composer Stuart Diamond’s prismatic video created for his 1974 Baroque Fantasy. New York video artist Sheri Wills‘ videos are featured in Sapphire (2010) by New York composer Preston Stahly; Dilemma (1987) by Czech composer Jan Jirásek; The Red Curtain Dance (2003) and Letter to Avigdor (1990) by Israeli American composer Ofer Ben-Amots; and Metaman (2009) by Rome Prize winner Charles Norman Mason.
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.
