Sunship joins former Stinkhorn members Brian Heaney (guitar) and Michael Monhart (sax) with David Revelli (drums), from the Grassy Knoll, and from the San Francisco music scene, Andrew Luthringer (bass). Stuart Dempster (trombone, didjeridu, conch, etc.) joined in 2005 and fills out this swinging “intergalectric” ensemble. Sunship derives its sound from jazz innovators such as Sun Ra and John Coltrane and from new modernists James Blood Ulmer and Nels Cline. Stuart brings his eclectic background of modern classical and improvisation to the mix.
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.
