An evening of music: 8pm
$5-$15 suggested donation at the door; the performer will be masked, and masks are highly encouraged.
Morton Feldman’s For Bunita Marcus (1985) is one of the great piano masterpieces of the late 20th century. Building on a handful of notes and pregnant pauses, Feldman uses his singular talent to spin magic glass and dance through silence. Lasting more than 60 minutes in one unbroken movement, For Bunita Marcus brings music to the event horizon.
Multi-instrumentalist Peter Nelson-King will perform the work while showcasing his original visual art in the gallery, primarily asemic writing on salvaged materials. These pieces, including an enormous scroll, will be arranged throughout the performance space, and audience members are encouraged to walk around to view the works during the performance in a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.

7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
Ricksplund has been playing as an electronics+live instrument duo for over a decade and they are releasing their first album, I WANT TO BE, that features recordings from most of this decade. While most of the time Asplund plays viola processed by Ricks’ rig, sometimes the script is flipped with Ricks playing trombone through Asplund’s very different rig. Ricksplund is most privileged to be joined by Seattle percussion phenom Greg Campbell.

Fil Am music night // Oakland experimental duo Grex returns to Seattle, joining virtuoso drummer Chris Icasiano and musician/poet Nic Masangkay for an evening of cutting-edge sounds with a Filipino American twist.
Grex / https://www.grexsounds.com
Grex is an experimental music duo based out of Oakland, California. In biological terms, a “grex” is an entity composed of several smaller organisms. Grex (the band) explores the meeting point between surreal songcraft and the dark outer reaches of free jazz, industrial hip-hop, and art rock. The group has been called an “otherworldly experience” (Eugene Weekly) and “true genre warping music” (KFJC), recalling at turns the ecstatic energy of John Coltrane, the electronic squall of Death Grips, and the lilting songwriting of Mitski.
Chris Icasiano / https://www.chrisicasiano.com/
Christopher Icasiano is a Filipino-American percussionist and composer from Redmond, WA. Based now in Seattle, he has been performing and touring professionally for over 15 years. His specialization in free-improvisation and experimental music combined with his vast experience with pop and rock have made him a highly sought after collaborator in all genres of music. He co-founded the grassroots arts organization Table & Chairs, as well as the Racer Sessions, a weekly performance series and free-improvisation jam session. He is committed to anti-racist and anti-sexist organizing within Seattle’s DIY and art communities in order to create more accessible and safer spaces.
Nic Masangkay / https://nicmasangkay.com/
Nic Masangkay is a Seattle-based community musician and poet. They graduated in 2016 from the University of Washington with a Bachelor of Arts in English. Notable highlights include Buzzfeed, Autostraddle, and Tumblr features for poem “My Gender Is for Mothers”; 2018 Jack Straw Cultural Center Artist Assistance Program Resident; 2019 4Culture Arc Artist Fellow; and independent singer-songwriter-producer alt-pop releases with EP Dark at Dusk: the Final Suicide (2019), singles “Star” (2021) and “Mothers” (2022). Aside from their solo work, Masangkay regularly collaborates with music, movement, and film artists, for remixing, scoring, production, and live sound. As they move to create more intergenerational and all-ages art, working with young people as a teaching artist is a budding focus of their practice. In their music, poetry, collaborations, teaching, and everyday life, Nic generously shares their perspective on the transformative potential of cultural work.

The Yes, Well… (Jeph Jerman & Dave Knott)
Patrick Danse’s film The Finger’d Remove
Born January 16, 1959 Agana, Guam.
“In 1986 I began recording and performing under the name Hands To. Most of the early soundwork was sampler and tape loop based, though over the course of ten years it evolved into using environmental recordings with very little to no manipulation or electronic processing.
In 1996 in Seattle I embarked upon a weekly series of concerts at Anomalous Records which brought me into contact with the city’s improvised music community. For the next three years I played with anyone who would have me. During this time I began giving solo performances using only natural found objects (stones, shells, bones, driftwood, pine cones, etc), as soundmakers, a practice which continues to today. Eventually I stopped using the name Hands To.
In 1999, the Animist Orchestra was founded. The AO focuses on making music that hopefully bypasses our individual egos.
Most of my previous work could be interpreted as being ‘idea-based’. I find that most of my work nowadays is sound-based. I believe this is due to my growing interest in listening, in what happens when one listens, and my concomitant disinterest in contextualizing sound.” – Jeph Jerman
David Knott, MM, MT-BC is a board-certified music therapist, fellow in the Academy of Neurologic Music Therapy, instrument maker, improvisor and composer living and working in Seattle.

He specializes in using improvisation to engage and facilitate therapeutic change with critically ill children.
