Seattle composer/violinist Julio Lopez presents four new small-scale pieces for mixed ensembles, as well as Snakemouth, an extended composition/improvisational form for solo violin and electronics. These pieces are built on a conception of music as a performative engagement with ontological structures of thought. Fueled by questions of identity, subjectivity, empathy, and togetherness, these pieces attempt to seek out radical conceptual spaces of “being” (and performing “being”) as well as ways of inhabiting them with beauty and meaning.
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.
