  • 02/22/14--20:00: pincushioned
  • 8:00 PM; $5 - $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/checks only). Presented by Nonsequitur.

    pincushioned is the invention/fabrication of Arizona-based duo Barry Moon (Baz) and Doug Nottingham (Dug). Since 2007 they have been working from a remote/suburban desert bunker melding digital sounds and images with their analog counterparts – beating drums, destroying guitars, spinning dials, sliding faders, writing software, building instruments and projecting bizarre imagery. These garbage-pickers of music and art exploit anything/everything: Jay Z, Xenakis, or Rembrandt are no safer than Shostakovich, the Butthole Surfers, or Bill Viola from their synthesizing/thieving hands. They go beyond post-modernism and into pre”whatever”, creating an abstract body of interactive millennial media art. Their ethos/nihilism is evidenced by a DIY/DUI search for “digital answers for unasked questions” or “D.A.F.U.Q”. They play/labor laying down grooves/non-grooves in 4/4, 13/4, 17/5, etc. not to be clever (they are not), but because they feel it; they want you to feel it.

    Only Trio is a chamber jazz ensemble composed of trumpet, trombone, and saxophone. Music is written and arranged by Steve O'Brien, and personnel are Kate Olson (soprano sax), Jacob Herring (trombone), and Steve O'Brien (trumpet). Only Trio started as a project for the Capitol Hill neighborhood. O'Brien wanted an ensemble to play his original tunes that didn't have to travel across the city to rehearse, and to give his unique "chamber jazz" arrangements a new voice. Hence, Only Trio was born; a collection of neighbors in the shadow of Cornish College of the Arts. O'Brien, Herring and Olson had experience playing together already as a part of Wayne Horvitz's Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble, and the continued collaboration seemed inevitable. The trio recorded their first studio EP last year, which is available on Bandcamp!


    The TKO Super Secret Saxophone Project is Kate Olson, soprano; Ivan Arteaga, alto; Chris Credit, tenor; Peter Danie, baritone. Since moving to Seattle in 2010, Kate Olson has sought to find a way to collaborate with other saxophonists. Four years and a few false starts later, she's written a four-movement suite of minimalist-inspired music to commemorate her 31st birthday, and found the talented musicians to make it come to life. Each movement is 31 measures long and employs the compositions like jazz heads; improvisation is book-ended by the performance of each movement's written material. Their performance will consist of that suite (#1: Birth, Living, Dying, Decay) as well as Dis connect, a piece composed and arranged for saxophone quartet by Naomi Siegel.

  • 03/01/14--20:00: Tom Baker: Deeply Lodged
  • 8:00 PM; $5 - $15 sliding scale suggested donation at the door (cash/check only). Presented by Nonsequitur.

    Composer Tom Baker premiers three recent chamber works:

    Invisible Cities (2011) is loosely based on stories by Italo Calvino, found in his novella of the same name, wherein Marco Polo describes to Kublai Kahn the fantastical, magical and improbable cities in his vast kingdom. The Seattle premiere is performed by the Corigliano Quartet.

    Songs of Sleep & Dreams (2013), commissioned by trumpeter Brian Chin, is based on the sensual poetry of sleeping and dreaming written by Fernando Pessoa. It is set in the original Portuguese. Soprano Cherie Hugues, along with Brian Chin and percussionist Ben Thomas perform this world premiere.

    Deeply Lodged (2014) The newest work on the program is premiered by pianist Cristina Valdes, with Paul Taub on flute and Jesse Canterbury on clarinet. The piece explores our relationship to memory: its powerful hold on us; how it changes and warps as it deceives us; the ways in which we share our memories with others; and the fear that our own memory ultimately disintegrates even as we cling desperately to it.
