Gallery 1412 has been part of the Seattle music scene since 2004. There’s no wealthy benefactor involved, so in a way it’s a bit of a miracle, made possible by members who scrape together monthly rent not just for their own use of the space (teaching, rehearsals, recording, gigs), but so that the venue exists for local and out-of-town artists who need a place to perform that supports non-commercial music. Out-jazz, free improv, classical music across the spectrum, Indian classical music, musicals — you name it.
Don Berman (who is not even a member!) had a dream to put on a benefit concert to keep this leaky old ship afloat. I’ll be there, doing a brief solo performance, and Don will do a flute/drums duo with Dick Valentine, along with a performance by The Indigo (harpist Carol Levin and Amelia Love Clearheart). And then YOU, fair audience member, may join the throng, in an improvised session for the remainder of the night.
We’d love to see you there — bring your horn, harp, hands, harmonica, etc.
The 48-Hour Composition Competition (48CC) brings composers and performers together to create some exciting and (extremely) new music. The 48CC gives composers 48 hours to compose a piece for their assigned instrumentation and gives performers six days to prepare before they perform the piece in concert.
The greatest composition will claim the grand prize and bragging rights forever — at least until the next one. This is a chance for you to show off your skills, exercise your musical muscles, meet new collaborators or just hang out and enjoy the show!
For those attending, there will be a suggested $5-15 donation at the door.
Sign up to perform or compose here (http://bit.ly/48CCSignUp), and bring your friends to the concert at Gallery 1412 for some excellent new music!!

Instruments performing with electronics, known as electro-acoustic music, is an exciting new trend in contemporary classical music. University of Washington Master’s in Music students Diego Espinoza, Brian Schappals and Miao Liu present a performance celebrating music composed for woodwind instruments and electronics. We present a wide range of electronic mediums by composers Hans Tutschku, VJ Manzo, Jacob ter Veldhuis, Melody Eötvös and Steve Reich.
Held: A triptych of solo performance events exploring the interstitial spaces within a single, gendered body and around and between bodies as subject and object, incorporating processes of sound, movement, and light.
pause: my body is a bearer of space
stick: sculpture made from absence of light

Guadalajara-based composer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Zár has been part of a vibrant psychedelic scene in Mexico for the past ten years with the bands Antoine Reverb and Dorotheo. Last year he released his first solo album “There Is No Distortion In Heaven” vía Seattle’s Halfshell Records and was premiered by Impose Magazine. ” There Is No Distortion In Heaven travels through progressive realms of resistance and release across its seven tracks, it offers a sonic bridge inward, and while the trip might not always be easy, in the end, this record celebrates the journey with open heart and clear mind”. – LIVE EYE TV.

Theater or Roosevelt started at movie nights in the basements of Casa Verde (artist/community house in Revenna), has blossomed into an orchestrated full blown instrument and acoustic sound orgy. Drawing in talented musicians and guests throughout Seattle. Their performances are rare, quite, loud and full of soul. Please join Drama Bahama, Josh and Matt on this special expedition through sound and old film.
