The flagship big band of the Monktail Creative Music Concern, NON GRATA consists of all given members of the Monktail collective at a given point, and relies on patterns, textures and forms developed through ensemble practice. It is new composition in a spontaneous music combat zone. Basically, we’re the bastard children of art music and we’re running with scissors.
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.
