Minneapolis-based pianist Matthew McCright brings his Connecting Flights program to Seattle. The evening’s music features a wide range of interconnected, contemporary composers that will be featured on his upcoming 2018 recording What is Left Behind. Venezuelan composer Reinaldo Moya’s epic 30-minute The Way North appears alongside music by traditional Irish composer Linda Buckley, as well as poignant pieces by Amy Williams, Stephen Andrew Taylor, and the percussive dance-club rhythms of Andrea Mazzariello’s Flight School. “When sitting on a long flight; having run out of podcasts or my latest digital book is done, I am drawn to the airline magazine section that shows the route map for the globe. It is fascinating how interconnected the world really is,” said McCright. “My program takes its inspiration from that route map — each piece touches on the notion of flight and influences and connects with the other.”
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.
