The Already and the Not Yet – Improvisations on clarinet, piano, penny whistles, and shruti box, recorded live at the Chapel on April 22, 2021.

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.
