    8:00 PM; advance tickets available online: $10 general admission, $50 admission + wine ($35 tax-deductible), $75 add CD ($50 deductible), $125 add DVD ($90 deductible); presented by Seattle Modern Orchestra.

    For our first benefit concert, SMO welcomes pianist Stephen Drury for an exciting and virtuosic solo recital. Drury's program features three works rarely heard in Seattle:

    Serynade by German composer Helmut Lachenmann focuses on the inevitable natural law that the sound of the piano is always fading out, and explores how the piano sound can be kept alive, worked and shaped to stop its death and therefore, time.

    John Cage's Etudes Australes consists of 32 indeterminate pieces written using star charts, which results in an unbound independence of the performer's hands.

    Finally, Charles Ives' Concord Sonata represents his "impression of the spirit of the transcendentalism" of Emerson, Hawthorne, the Alcotts, and Thoreau.

  • 05/04/13--20:00: Neal Meyer & Keith Eisenbrey
  • 8:00 PM; $5 - $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/checks only)

    Two long-time collaborators share a piano concert of epic stillness.

    Neal Meyer continues his exploratory celebration of the silence of John Cage with a performance of the seminal graphic-score Solo for Piano from Concert for Piano and Orchestra (1958).

    Keith Eisenbrey presents his recent contemplative pitch stereoscope: Welcome to my planet. I come in peace. Two frameworks, joined at the source, phased (in specious increments), cogs and gears, mutually warped and warping, rounding space.

    Presented by Nonsequitur. This tribute to the brilliant Butch Morris, who passed away earlier this year, features two of his close friends and colleagues – Wayne Horvitz (Seattle) and JA Deane aka "Dino" (New Mexico) – using the conduction techniques developed and pioneered by Morris with the Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble. Employing an elaborate repertoire of hand signals, Horvitz and Deane guide the musicians through spontaneous compositions in which the musicians control the content while the conductors control the form and structure.

    The Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble features some of Seattle’s finest and most innovative improvisers under the direction of Wayne Horvitz: Ivan Arteaga, Sam Boshnack, Ryan Burns, Chris Credit, Eric Eagle, Beth Fleenor, Craig Flory, Geoff Harper, Jacob Herring, Al Keith, Steve O'Brien, Christian Pincock, Naomi Siegel, and Jacob Zimmerman.

     Mouth of Gravity consists of multi-instrumentalist and music educator Denney Goodhew playing piano in this configuration, globe trotting multi-faceted guitarist Mark Oi, and dimensional drum ace Adam Kessler. Movement artist Alia Swersky is a performer and teacher engaged deeply in the vital act of dance improvisation. Together they delve into vacillating kaleidoscopes of color, shape and velocities one moment, a piercing whisper the next, the bull’s rush of a butterfly’s breath. This collaboration should prove to be of magical proportions. Please come and be part of it.

    8:00 PM; $10 students/seniors, $18 general online or $20 at the door. Presented by Seattle Modern Orchestra.

    For its season finale, Seattle Modern Orchestra is very excited to present three pieces of contemporary classical music that each use space in a unique and nontraditional format that is sure to bring a unique musical experience to all in attendance.

    Music In Space features music from György Kurtág, Iannis Xenakis, and SMO's own Jérémy Jolley. University of British Columbia Professor of Piano and Chamber Music Dr. Corey Hamm will join us for Kurtág's ....una quasi fantasia..., where each instrumental family (woodwinds, brasses, strings, piano, and percussion) will surround the audience with both remarkably delicate and bombastic textures all juxtaposed against one another. Xenakis' Eonta for piano, 2 trumpets, and 3 trombones begins with granulated surfaces while gradually growing smoother as the brasses move around the stage, play inside the piano, and rotate throughout the Chapel. For Jolley's EisBerg, the audience will surround the piano while Seattle favorite Cristina Valdes reveals a multitude of resonances, which are then amplified by the six surrounding instrumental groups.

    If you've ever wondered what it's like to sit in the middle of an orchestra, you won't want to miss this show!

  • 06/04/13--20:00: Ivan Arteaga
  • (photo: Jake Knapp) 8:00 PM; $5 - $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/checks only)

     Composer/saxophonist Ivan Arteaga presents an evening of new works for the completion of his Masters Degree in Music Composition at the University of Washington. Ivan has taken the energy and excitement that can be found in improvisational music, and utilized it as a tool in generating materials and sounds for use in more through-composed music. The two pieces on the program were completely generated by way of improvising and workshopping with the ensembles over a long period of time. This has allowed for the musicians to cultivate a strong sense of relationship in musical language in improvisation, while at the same time allowing for a clear and consistent compositional form. Ivan also utilizes Supercollider for live digital signal processing, adding a sheen of colors to the music, generated directly from the sounds of the musicians. Also on the program is a short set of jazz standards, performed duo with guitarist Gregg Belisle-chi.

    Musicians: Ivan Arteaga - compositions, alto saxophone; Neil Welch - tenor saxophone; Greg Sinibaldi - baritone saxophone; Jared Borkowski - guitar; Katie Jacobson - voice; Cameron Sharif - piano; Evan Woodle - drums; Greg Belisle-Chi - guitar.

  • 06/06/13--20:00: Leslie Ross
  • 8:00 PM; $5 - $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/checks only); presented by Nonsequitur.

    NYC-based bassoonist and instrument builder Leslie Ross performs a series of pieces for micro-amplified bassoon and quadraphonic speakers, with/without laptop. Working with fifteen microphones placed directly on the tone holes of the bassoon, the signals are directed to four or more speakers around a room, while the acoustic instrument remains a presence. This set up takes apart the sound of the instrument, each microphone differentiating and picking up slightly different timbre and frequency nuances which, when sent to multiple speakers, creates a thickly textured listening environment. This is particularly true with multiphonics, which are used extensively in most of the pieces. Pitches and phrases blending in and out of these multiphonics are often further supported with the use of circular breathing. Some of the pieces involve sound processing and spatial shifts using MAX.
