ALL RISE short duration performances and happenings
ALL RISE is interested in spontaneity and the authenticity of street buskers, organized and improvised interventions, group performances and more. Musicians are invited to create original works that call attention to the site's potential, evoking its vast emptiness and filling the space with sound. We will document these as possible, but hope that participants (viewers and artists) will self-document, self-direct, and share with #allriseseattle.
May 7. 5:00 - 8:00 SYRINX effect
ALL RISE is pleased to present Kate Olson and Naomi Siegel of Syrinx Effect who will perform as part of the Play Here Now series on Thursday, May 7 from 5:00 - 8:00 on the ALL RISE campus located at 1250 Denny Way during the South Lake Union Art Walk.
An acoustic-electric duo with endless possibilities, Syrinx Effect plays their own blend of folk punk jazz. They easily switch between dreamy ambient loops, catchy pop riffs and found sounds, all the while paying homage to their free improv roots. Naomi plays trombone with guitar pedals and Kate plays soprano saxophone with laptop and other toys. The duo got its start curating the Racer Sessions in Seattle, and has gone on to perform prolifically around the US, collaborating with many of the mainstays of the improvised music scene such as Wayne Horvitz, Robin Holcomb, Elliott Sharp, Bobby Previte, Stuart Dempster, Allison Miller, Rene Hart. Syrinx Effect makes music that is authentic and expressive, employing everything from simple folk melodies to abstract, ambient noise. Each piece is a meditation, an exploration, and sometimes a romp.
