A concert of Music on Music! The best way a composer can pay tribute, comment on, or criticize a piece is to write another piece of music in response. SMO will present three composers that have entered in dialogue with another work: Earle Brown’s Tracking Pierrot (1992), a tribute to Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot Lunaire, op. 21; UW faculty member Joël-François Durand’s Tombeau de Rameau II for solo piano (2013), a deformation/expansion of Rameau’s Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts, featuring pianist Cristina Valdes; and Franco Donatoni’s Tema, in which he pushes further a work of his own, Ruisseau dans l’escalier.
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.
