Seattle Modern Orchestra opens its season with an exploration of musical pluralism. This concert features music that allows the performers to change the form at each reading, which means that no two performances are ever the same. Works by Earle Brown (Event: Synergy II), Sylvano Bussotti (Couer Pour Batteur), a rare performance of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Zyklus by percussionist Bonnie Whiting Smith, and a world premiere by Seattle composer Tom Baker (Shendos No. 12) commissioned by SMO.
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.
