Past Performance Events
Our guests: the Schlei brothers, Kevin and Steve - dynamic electronics with a huge palette of sounds, colors, textures, and rhythms. Seed Sounds is always looking to take off in new directions and this combination is certain to soar, as they join with the Seed Sounds core group of Linda Binder, violin, mandola, waterphone; Paul Westfahl, drums, percussion; Rick Ollman, flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, cornet, trombone, guitar.
Note: We are early in the month and early in the evening. It's the 2nd Sunday (not our usual 3rd) and 5:30pm start time (not our usual 7pm).
Says Things (MI) is the electroacoustic duo of longtime collaborators Derek Worthington and Jon Taylor. Over the years they have developed a deep rapport and a unique improvisational language focusing on collaborative development, avoiding a 'soloist vs. accompanist' mindset. Says Things' music draws inspiration from experimental jazz, tape music, glitch, and Americana, processing those influences into a new and personal sound.
Pat Reinholz, (MKE) cellist, composer, educator. Combines traditional and extended cello technique with electronics, and mixes compositions with free improvisation into a powerful blend of churning, soaring sound.

Teiku (which means “unanswered question”), to document, perform, and breathe new life into these beautiful old melodies. Teiku sets these melodies in a creative music context, balancing carefully-set parameters and free improvisation. The excitement of improvisation lies in its uncertainty and potential for infinite possibilities, and the name itself refers to the collective feeling of discovery that improvising musicians know well: creating cohesive textural environments in real time that are felt so viscerally but cannot be expressed with words.
For the first time Seed Sounds will be sharing the evening with a most interesting guest band, Adam Nussbaum's Lead Belly Project from NYC. The two groups will offer quite different kinds of experimental music. The Lead Belly Project is inspired by the music of the great folk singer and blues artist Huddie Ledbetter, better known as Lead Belly.
Performing solo and with the band, select interpretations from the likes of Ellington & Gershwin, to original songs - like small movies for the ears
