The composer collective Deep Listening Band—Seattle trombonist Stuart Dempster, keyboardist David Gamper, and accordionist Pauline Oliveros—elevates improvisational music with a passion (and reputation) for site-specific pieces that use space and resonance as inspiration. Celebrating more than 20 years together, the acclaimed group has honed its instrumental-electronic-experimental niche in a 2-million-gallon cistern, an old limestone quarry, and a lava cave. Now, after a weeklong residency absorbing Town Hall’s unique aural and tonal qualities, DLB presents a surround-sound concert featuring the premieres of Great Howl and Town Haul, enhanced by the Expanded Instrument System tonal “time machine” and state-of-the-art sound from the University of Washington’s Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media. Presented by the University of Washington School of Music, DXARTS, and Town Hall.
Tickets are $15/$5 Town Hall Members, seniors & students at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800/838-3006.
