Scrape is a conductor-less string orchestra with harp and guitar that performs within a blend of jazz and classical traditions. Scrape plays the music of Jim Knapp and features great improvising artists guitarist Gregg Belisle-Chi, bassist Chris Symer, and guest soloist Mark Taylor. Toni McGowan will be presented at this event as both composer and lyricist and vocalist Chérie Hughes brings her outstanding musicianship to augment the sound with her lyric presence. Concertmaster Heather Bentley guides us through the night without a conductor in sight.
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.
