Halfbird
https://halfbird.bandcamp.com/
Halfbird is a very noisy trio of Grant Pierce (Not Bitter, Pinkish) on drums, Brandon Conway on guitar and Ben Kates (Thicket, It’s OK, Girl) on saxophone. Wear earplugs.

Walrus Machine
https://soundcloud.com/walrusmachine
Walrus Machine is a classically trained musician, a polymath, a painter, and a metalhead. There are four different musical instruments: drums, alto saxophone, guitar, and trombone. Walrus Machine started in 2005 as a duo. Then they became a trio in 2007. They have been playing as a quartet since 2014. Walrus Machine has survived on will and reputation alone with few recordings. Die, collector scum! Always live and strictly improvised. THAT IS IT. The kids call it free jazz. The painter grits their teeth. The polymath adjusts accordingly. The classically trained musician takes a vacation. The metalhead gets liberated. Pick your poison. You’ll be sick no matter what.

Radon Daughters
Patrick Neill Gundran, Horridus, Blake DeGraw and Clifford Dunn.

AF Jones / Derek Rogers
_________
While they share the same taste, and musical heroes, AF Jones & Derek Rogers adhere to different approaches to making music. In playing shows together they have found an oddly natural juxtaposition resulting in something very new each time. Their efforts were described succinctly over at Tiny Mix Tapes as “two gripping fists in a fascinating aural handshake.”
A show in Dallas last year resulted in the live record Cedars, out on Sedimental.  Brian Olewnick of Just Outside called it “excellently judged shifts in timbre and dynamics while maintaining an ever-engrossing structural arc.”
About their live dynamic on Cedars,Brainwashed said “Rogers and Jones mix a bit of everything in, from recorded piano and acoustic guitar to random found sounds and carefully modulated feedback and distortion.  Different components are introduced, allowed to breathe and develop, but are then retired before stagnating and replaced with new ones, keeping a consistent current from beginning to end.”
They’ve also released the album Repetend, Parallax as a duo on Jason Lescaleet’s Glistening Examples, heralded at We Need No Swords as “…a compelling double-header by two of the most interesting US sonic experimenters…”

Gallery 1412 Benefit Performance and Jam

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.

48-Hour Composition Competition – Seattle, WA (Sound of Late) April 14th

#####28827225_2353758174649791_1676643435995060771_o

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!!
