Presented by DXARTS, in collaboration with Archivo P.A.I.S. (Programa Teatro Acústico-UNQ). Nicolás Varchausky performs with his SPK (Speaker Performing Kiosk), an autarchic performing device that uses the speaker not as an object that reproduces sound but as an object that generates it, using analog and digital feedback as its main material. Holding two wireless mics in his hands, the performer transforms the emerging sound in real time acoustically – by moving through the space and changing dramatically the angle of the microphones – and digitally – by means of a computer software. While inside the device, the performer is sometimes in control of the system and sometimes the system controls him.
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.
