“It is impossible to talk about the unmistakable sound of Pacific Northwest rock music without including the name Steve Fisk. A legend in the Northwest and renowned the world over, Fisk has made an indelible mark on the scene as a producer, engineer, teacher and performer. From the underground to the mainstream, from alternative to indie-pop, artists have been benefiting from his keen ear, superior technical skills, and inventive sound for nearly four decades. “
Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic, is full, textured, committed and original. A relentless inquirer, her work drifts freely across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography.
Glands of External Secretion began on February 8, 1992, when Barbara Manning was recording tracks for a solo single to be released by the Majora label, and summoned Bananafish writer/editor Seymour Glass for assistance pushing the record button. Ask a first-year science student, what’s the first thing one does if there’s any sign of abnormal chemistry? That’s right — goggle up. The room was filled with it and the protective eyeware is permanent. After 30 years of recording and performing together and apart, wobbling in the crosswalk at the intersection of song-craft and the type of audio event referred to by some people as, after hearing it for the first time, “whatever the hell that was supposed to be,” Manning and Glass push each other into the other’s oncoming traffic, so to speak, only to yank themselves back to the relative safety of a sweet little patch of the parking lot known as “somewhat listenable, a lot of the time.”
Arrington de Dionyso : Arrington de Dionyso conjures Utopic Spaces with multiphonic vocal work & minimalist instrumentation. It’s shamanic seance meets rock and roll ecstasy; “TRANCE PUNK” combining traditional ritual trance, electrified experimental approaches, dancehall rhythms, gamelan scales and mystically inspired Indonesian incantations. Shocking and hallucinatory, MALAIKAT DAN SINGA always aims to channel Spirit.
What will happen: four dear friends will share sounds and stories in three sets, with instruments and voices, sharing the sense of collective revolutions and towards many hearts opening into the possibility of another world. Yalda Mubarak! Bring back the light! Hyske, Siem!!!!

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.

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.
