Jan 28, 2024 10:00 PM – 12:00 AM

Music

With Michael Schell

Creative and improvised music from the Northwest and around the world with host Michael Schell. Seattle’s finest and longest-running radio program devoted to the musical avant-garde.

Steven Mackey interviewed

Steven Mackey joins Flotation Device to talk about his new theater piece Memoir, which receives its Northwest premiere on February 2nd at Seattle Symphony’s Octave 9 space. We’ll sample Steven’s music, and discuss his journey from rock guitarist to modernist composer to fusion artist (and how his late mother inspired works like Memoir and his violin concerto Beautiful Passing). Death plays a much darker role in the music of Luigi Nono, who’ll get a retrospective look in honor of his centenary. We’ll also revisit the more conciliatory music of John Tavener for what would have been his 80th birthday. An Ursula Mamlok premiere recording, plus new improvised and fixed-media tracks by Mary Halvorson, Kate Gentile, Doug Haire, Philip Zoubek, International Contemporary Ensemble, The Late Unpleasantness, Mats Gustafsson and Tani Tabbal round out this high-impact program.
