Pianist, composer, and experimentalist Tim Root presents his new music/theater/performance work, Pound Fifty Turns, for amplified instruments, voices, electronics, movement and projection. The project combines absurdist theater, aleatoric composition, improvisation, and visual images in a celebration of the composer’s 50th birthday. With Beth Fleenor (amplified clarinet, voice, electronics), Queen Shmooquan (voice, performance), Kate Olson (soprano sax, electronics), Greg Sinibaldi (tenor sax), Sam Boshnack (trumpet), Naomi Siegel (trombone, electronics), Tom Peters (bass, electronics, projection), Steve Ball (guitar), Greg Campbell (percussion, horn, electronics) and Tim Root (inside/prepared piano, voice, electronics).
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.
