The group has been writing a collaborative song cycle that consists of chamber music, sonic landscapes, electronic sounds and quiet lullabies dedicated to soothing lost worlds, hopeless love and crumbling empires.

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.
