Herbert Brün was a pioneer of electronic and computer music, with particular interests in cybernetics and language, who also sought to apply principals of composition to social theory. As a professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaigne he was a highly influential teacher to a generation of American composers. Tonight’s concert is a tribute by some of his students, performing works by themselves and their teacher. Herbert Brün: Infraudibles for quintet; Susan Parenti: The Poet Retracts; Mark Enslin: Unentitled for speaking pianist; Arun Chandra: An Untitled Poem in Sixteen Stanzae; Ben Kapp: Three Poems by Gertrude Stein for voice and two percussionists.
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.
