Wayward in Limbo #11: Paul Kikuchi

Paul Kikuchi is a musician and sound artist. He is a seeker of things undefinable – drawn to the shadows and the margins. He is music faculty at South Seattle College. You can buy his music directly from BandCamp.

notes scratched on paper; chasing temple bells before dawn; biking narrow streets; fine dust that gathers in 100 year old grooves; things loved by those who are no longer; the pulsing glow of coals.

With the Chapel closed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wayward Music Series moves from the concert hall to the living room. In place of our usual ten monthly concerts, Nonsequitur is commissioning ten Seattle artists each month to create a series of streaming audio sessions of previously unreleased material.
