Amid The Swirling is a new work by noisepoetnobody (Casey Chittenden Jones) on analog modular synthesizer, hollow log with springs, resonant copper, and processed field recordings, also featuring liquids field recording by Briana Jones.
Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present ten concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center (which sits on the traditional homelands of the Duwamish people): contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.
With the Chapel closed indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wayward Music Series has moved from the concert hall to the living room. In place of their usual ten monthly concerts, Nonsequitur is commissioning ten Seattle artists each month to create a series of streaming audio sessions of previously unreleased material. Noisepoetnobody has been a regular contributing artist to the series for over a decade, and for this new work he strove to re-create some of the natural reverb and atmosphere found in the performance space.
