Presented by The Box Is Empty and Nonsequitur. Denver pianist R. Andrew Lee performs the Northwest premiere of Dennis Johnson’s proto-minimalist masterwork November. The piece is spare and meditative, and nearly five hours long. It holds the unique and auspicious place in American music history of having inspired La Monte Young’s The Well-Tuned Piano. November went unheard for decades until Young gave an ancient cassette recording of a partial performance to composer Kyle Gann, who then reconstructed it with the help of the composer.
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.
