Jesse Myers brings a set of solo piano music by living American composers to the stage. Accessible, adventurous, uniquely American and urban— this program highlights the works of iconic minimalist composers as well as new music featuring acoustic piano and electronics. Myers has a strong interest in exploring the expanded possibilities of the piano. His recent concerts of John Cage’s Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano have been featured on KingFM’s Second Inversion, Seattle Weekly, The Live Music Project, and were a part of The Stranger’s “Best Winter Concerts of 2017.” His recent work with the prepared piano has led to artist residencies at Cornish College of the Arts and Bowling Green State University in 2017.

— “Manifestly courageous” (Boston Globe) soprano Stacey Mastrian performs works for voice with electronics and piano by two generations of American composers: the venerable Earle Brown, Morton Feldman, and Alvin Lucier, and the current generation—Mike Boyd, Stephen Lilly, Kristian Twombly, and Steve Wanna. As visually arresting as they are aurally, the pieces ask us to consider “What is a score?” and reveal the inner voices of the performer, from meditative to humorous and theatrical.
