Friday, November 11th-8 PM Michael Vlatkovich Sextet

Featuring Gregg Campbell, Jim Knodle, Very Special Anonymous Guitar, Very Special Anonymous Alto Saxophone, and Very Special Anonymous Bassist. Their names cannot appear because of border issues, but believe it: they are “something else”!
Prepare for such toe-tapping favorites as “Mr Curly, On His Goat-Assisted Pedal Car, Blows Into the Policeman’s Tin Whistle”-this means more, probably, if you are from Australia.

==NICOLA TIRABASSO==
soundcloud.com/nicolatirabasso

Hailing from Milan, Italy, Nicola Tirabasso’s work is the result of a fusion between filmic image aesthetics and the construction of sound on it. Tirabasso’s performance creates a dilated spatial and temporal dimension, developing a sonic-perceptive dialectics around the concept of repetition (loop) using cut-ups, field recordings and electronic frequencies.

Tirabasso’s latest release, SOUNDS FROM THE COSMIC SILENCE (Entertainment Systems) is an immersive space odyssey using only sound coming from electronic vibrations of the planets, moons, rings, electromagnetic fields, planetary magnetosphere, trapped radio waves bouncing between the planet and the inner surface of its atmosphere as captured by NASA.

==JASON E ANDERSON==
pathoftheelk.com

Jason E Anderson is a Seattle-based artist whose work includes performance, recorded works, video, installation, and music for dance. Emerging from the traditions of experimental music and sound art, his work employs conceptual and intuitive methods of engaging with the psychological aspects of time, memory, space and perception. He creates sound using analog and digital synthesis techniques, acoustic recordings, programming and text. Anderson performs and records music under his own name, under the moniker Spare Death Icon, and in the collaborative performance art/music hybrid LIMITS with dancer/choreographer Corrie Befort. He has toured both coasts of the US and Japan, playing over 170 shows in the past ten years, while producing performance events in the Pacific Northwest and publishing the work of his contemporaries on his experimental record labels Gift Tapes and DRAFT, which include 63 releases to date. Anderson’s recorded work can be found on these labels, as well as Locust, Digitalis, Aguirre (Belgium), SicSic (Germany), Börft (Sweden) and many others.

==WILSON SHOOK==
otherghosts.net

Seattle saxophonist Wilson Shook makes music like a moth fluttering at a street light. Graceful, frantic, persistent and sometimes tragic, it is music absorbed of its own inscrutable purpose. It finds serenity in immediacy, escape in acts of radical presence. It is here, and then it is not.

Wilson performs frequently as a soloist; less frequently as a collaborator or interpreter of other fabulous artists in the worlds of Free Improv/Free Jazz/Noise/Other/etc. He also helps to organize Seattle’s Gallery 1412 collective.

==QOQO ROBOQS==
qoqoroboqs.tumblr.com

“…spectacular and too-short atmospheric, electro-indie pop with vocals that have the cadence and inflection of early 2000’s pop but darker. It’s certainly more experimental than anything Britney Spears ever made but this song walks right up to those dance pop classics and dodges all the gimmicky hooks or explosions, it’s far more nuanced and did I mention too short, I really just wanted this to go on forever.” (Secretly Important)

==JOE MILUTIS==
joemilutis.com

Joe Milutis is a media artist and writer whose interdisciplinary work includes experimental sound and radio; video works (for which he does his own music and sound design); new media; experimental narrative; theoretical writings; and various media and literature hybrids.

A Finnegans Wake Project 2016 (Oct. 15 and Nov. 19 at Gallery 1412; Dec. 17 at Chapel Performance Space)

Neal Kosaly-Meyer has embarked upon a 17-year project to learn and perform each chapter of James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake from memory, and with acute attention to the musical detail of this remarkable text.

For the third year Kosaly-Meyer is presenting a series of performances of the Wake chapters worked up thus far. Chapters 1 and 2 will be presented at Gallery 1412 in October and November, and Chapter 3 will receive its first public performance in December at Chapel Performance Space.

jjabbott1

The Gallery 1412 presentations will be intimate chamber performances attuned to this unique space. The performance at Chapel Performance Space will be more formal and theatrical, exploiting the acoustics and evocative qualities of the Chapel, along with more nuanced and designed sets, props, lighting and sound.
A Finnegans Wake Project proceeds from the conviction that Finnegans Wake is best experienced and understood when read or heard aloud, and that such reading and hearing will best occur if the text has been learned by heart, and rehearsed with care, in the same way a musician prepares a complex piece of music for performance.

Michael Flora // Jason E. Anderson// RM Francis :: 7/22/16

MichaelFlora

Michael Flora, one of the most radical voices of formal abstraction in contemporary American computer music, makes his Seattle debut with supporting solo sets from local abstract synthesis exponents Jason E. Anderson and RM Francis.

Friday, July 22, 8pm sharp. $5-15 sliding scale.

Michael Flora is a Minneapolis based sound artist. His interest is in the exploration of sound via research and artistic practice. Through performance, installation, and recording he creates pieces that examine sonic morphology, spatialization, and human perception. Since 2011, he has curated the experimental and sound art label Nada. He also hosts a monthly podcast as a member of the Aural Complex collective.

Jason E Anderson is a Seattle-based artist whose work includes performance, recorded works, video, installation, and music for dance. He creates sound using analog and digital synthesis techniques, acoustic recordings, programming and text. Anderson performs and records music under his own name, under the moniker Spare Death Icon, and in the collaborative performance art/music hybrid LIMITS with dancer/choreographer Corrie Befort. He also publishes the work of his contemporaries on his experimental record labels Gift Tapes and DRAFT. Anderson’s recorded work can be found on these labels, as well as Locust, Digitalis, Aguirre (Belgium), SicSic (Germany)and Börft (Sweden).

RM Francis is a computer musician living in Seattle. Since 2011, he has offered a molecularized account of possibilities within digital synthesis through live performances and recorded output. Deploying contemporary techniques as well as strategies drawn from the history of computer music, his works interrogate the boundaries of musical form. His cassette release Hyperplastic Other is forthcoming on Nada.
