PERFORMANCE ART

On this page I will highlight my performances. Many people ask me what I do as a performer and when I tell them, "I channel my audiences stories and I sing them and move intuitively to create healing for my audiences" they look at me like.... huh? So I created the video above as a kind of example of what that looks and sounds like. In the years that I have been doing these performances I've never had the equipment or the help to do videos of the performances and interactions with my audiences. These days I now have the tools to do videos so I look forward to presenting more of that here. 

2020 SEATTLE IMPROVISED MUSIC FESTIVAL

The above video is from the online 2020 Seattle Improvised Music Festival Performance featuring clarinetist Ben Goldberg (Berkeley, CA), drummer Galin Hebert and clarinetist Laurel Evers (Seattle, WA), saxophonist Sam Newsome (Brooklyn, NY), and saxophonist Joe McPhee (Poughkeepsie, NY).

 

This portion of the video features me, vocalist Tamara Zenobia, and saxophonist Dick Valentine (Seattle, WA) and drummer Thomas Campbell. This was such a great event to be a part of and it was wonderful to perform on a stage after being stuck in the house for months due to the pandemic. 

2020 WAYWARD IN LIMBO MUSIC SERIES

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 in Seattle: 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 Series moves from the concert hall to the living room. In place of our usual ten monthly concerts, Nonsequitur is commissioning ten Seattle artists each month to create a series of streaming audio sessions of previously unreleased material. I was commissioned to perform as a part of this series. Here is my performance.
