Presented by Seattle Chamber Players. Jean Cocteau’s Marriage at the Eiffel Tower serves as the basis for two works on the program. One of them, a collective work by Henry Cowell, John Cage and George McKay, was choreographed and produced by Bonnie Bird at the Cornish School in Seattle in 1939. Only several movements of the score (and only the works by Cowell) have since been published and performed. Ten years after the premiere of the Cowell/Cage/McKay piece, Bonnie Bird commissioned another work with the same title from composer Lou Harrison. Tonight, SCP presents both versions, along with Lou Harrison’s Music for Remy, with guest pianist Ivan Sokolov and choreographer Paige Barnes.
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.
