Alison Knowles makes performances, books, poems, and visual artworks. Since the 1960s she has been a key participant in Fluxus, an international group of artists working in/across various disciplines. For her first appearance in Seattle, she will present North Water Song, originally composed as a tribute to John Cage on his 75th birthday and realized as a sound work commissioned by West German Radio. This performance will include three simultaneous realizations of the score, with spoken text by Knowles, movement by her daughter Jessica Higgins, and sound by Joshua Selman. The text is published in her book Spoken Text.
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.
