The Many Duo is a showcase for two Seattle-based improvisational musicians: percussionist Kevin Haag and guitarist Matt Williams. Jenn Carreto contributes violin and/or keyboards, depending upon the collective trajectories. They create both free and structured sound textures derived from many musical “genres,” including jazz & blues, no wave, punk, ambient and heavy music. The Many Duo’s approach to soundcraft often employs hand-drawn shapes, pictures, random dictionary entries, graphic scores, dialogue, politics/social issues and loosely organized integers. The “shifting shades of green and grey” winter climate of Cascadia informs their dynamic yet understated musical aesthetic–pairing timekeeping with timelessness, hyperactivity with minimalism, and skepticism with hope.
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.
