Heather writes:
This being my first ever completely solo show, I'm excited to draw on some obsessions I have as a violist: the inner workings of slowly shifting harmonies (of which violists are the keepers in an orchestra), and the infinitely, minutely possible changes of color in the scope of sound of the instrument.
Not usually thought of as a solo instrument, on its own the viola yields a vastness of timbres within its small body. This is also my first time playing outta the house with my new robot loopy station, so I'll experiment with constructing some interesting atmospheres to release more singing and melodic aspects of the viola voice.

---------------------------------------------------------------

Spite House concerts started in 2013 as a venue for new music. Beloved by Seattle's improvisation communities, the series continues. Each concert begins with a presentation by the Spite House house band, followed by a concert presentation. Concert artists are selected by a rotating panel of curators, local musicians devoted to finding Seattle's most interesting and unique new music.

The third set is always open. Audience members are welcome to bring voices and other instruments. After the concert proper impromptu duos and small ensembles are formed to create a set of improvised magic.

No cover, donations warmly encouraged.
All night, in the kitchen: food, drink.

Spite House exists and persists 'in spite of' unceasing surrounding urban development. Check out this unique Seattle venue!
