Thursday, September 26 – 8pm
710 East Roy Street
Music in Other rooms (55 Redux)
Etudes for Piano and Electronics
Improvisations for Piano and Electronics
Trio Pardalote, pianist Cristina Valdes, and composer Wayne Horvitz perform new works by Horvitz for piano, strings and electronics.
Wayne Horvitz draws from the large body of audio samples recorded at Ft. Worden in Port Townsend for “55:Music and Dance in Concrete” to create a live performance score that uses the material as its foundation. Writing for the phenomenal pianist Cristina Valdes and Trio Pardalote, Horvitz has generated a suite of sonically rich and deeply textured compositions. As part of the evening’s program, Horvitz will also perform improvisations for amplified piano and laptop.
FRANKLY MONDAYS (can be awesome)
CRYSTAL BETH & THE BOOM BOOM BAND
WAYNE HORVITZ + BETH FLEENOR DUO
Monday, September 30 – 8pm
The Royal Room
5000 Rainier Ave S
With the reflexes of a mongoose and the swagger of leftist John Wayne, Crystal Beth* (aka: Beth Fleenor) brings her personal brand of posicore purge-pop-punk-hop ritual trance psychedelia to the Royal Room. Expect intense currents of bethnic chanting, propelled by the ferocious beating of the Boom Boom…
*Crystal Beth is psychoactive stimulant that increases alertness, concentration, and energy, and in high doses, can induce euphoria, enhance self-esteem, and increase libido.
Wayne Horvitz (piano/keyboard/electronics) & Beth Fleenor (clarinets/voice/electronics) start the evening with an improvised set of music ranging from pastoral to raucously visceral.
