Presented by Nonsequitur. Matthew Shipp has played piano since he was 5 years old. He studied at the New England Conservatory of Music with saxophonist Joe Maneri and cut his teeth working with saxophonists Roscoe Mitchell and David S. Ware and bassist William Parker. Bassist Michael Bisio, no stranger to Seattle audiences, has had vital working relationships with Joe McPhee, Charles Gayle, Barbara Donald, Bill Smith, and Stuart Dempster, among many others. Their most recent duo release Floating Ice has received immediate praise. Seattle Times preview.
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.
