Each month, Nonsequitur and a community of like-minded organizations and artists present 10 concerts of adventurous and experimental music in the gorgeous Chapel Performance Space at the Good Shepherd Center: contemporary/post-classical composition, free improvisation and the outer limits of jazz, electronic/electroacoustic music, new instruments, phonography, sound art, and other innovative musics.

About Broken Crow

Broken Crow is the trio of Caspar Sonnet (lap steel, pump organ), Joel Nelson (crank synth), and Sam Klapper (violin). Drawing from a contemporary take on acoustic folk/drone music, the trio settles into arched landscapes of spectral sound, using extended/prepared techniques and altered tunings to blend interdependent vestiges of vaguely familiar timbre, texture, and noise.
