Matthew Ryals (Brooklyn) / Chari ( Seattle) / Dark Sparkler (Bothell)
Suggested donation 10-20
An evening of electronic music curated by Matthew Ryals with support from some local musicians.
On tour from Brooklyn, NY, Matthew Ryals is a modular synthesist known for his work merging generative/algorithmic techniques with free improvisation. He is currently touring in support of his newest album, impromptus in isolation, “a bold, joyous tear through visceral free jazz, bucolic ambience, head-scratching sound design, and more.” – Mike Nigro, Oxtail Recordings.
For the tour, Matthew has developed a set of “Performance Patches” centered around various generative processes. In lieu of a lead sheet, each patch serves as a jumping off point for deep, improvisational exploration resulting in a unique and entirely unpredictable performance each night.
impromptus in isolation releases June 17th on Sound As Language on cassette and digital. It was recorded live at home without overdubs.
