The event creator says
Pianist R. Andrew Lee is one of the foremost interpreters of minimal music. He has been described as having “consistently impressive solo releases… asserting a vision of musical Minimalism far broader than the limited patch that abused term usually signifies.” (Steve Smith, New York Times), and his CD, Eva-Maria Houben: Piano Music, was chosen by Alex Ross in the New Yorker as one of the Top 10 Classical Recordings of 2013. He returns to Seattle to present two evenings of newly commissioned music presented by Nonsequitur.

The Friday program opens with Craig Shepard‘s "December," a captivating exploration of the overtones of a select few pitches on the lower end of the piano. This is followed by the world premiere of two newly commissioned works: local composer Nat Evans‘ "Desert Ornamentation," a thirty-minute improvisatory work for piano and electronics, a response to Evans’ journey along the Pacific Crest Trail; and "Obessions" by Adrian Knight, an extended exploration of stubborn habits, routines, patterns, and, of course, obsessions.
