Saxophonist Neil Welch spent a year living in a house tucked away in the woods on Whidbey Island. Spending his days practicing, he would periodically come back to the city and record some solo music. Boxwork is the outcome – a collection of fourteen musical vignettes spanning a wide range of Neil’s unique solo style. From explorations in pitch timbre, threads of sound energy, to extreme dynamics and guttural screams, all is performed acoustically. Opening is the Quantum String Quartet, performing Bartok’s String Quartet No. 3, and Ives’ Scherzo for String Quartet.
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.
