Wednesday, September 19 - 7:30 p.m.- Beth Fleenor. Jazz. $10 advance/$12 door/$6 students.
Composer/clarinetist/vocalist Beth Fleenor harbors a strong love for variety and all sonic manipulation, moving freely through genres such as jazz, rock, orchestral, contemporary chamber, Slavic & American folk, metal, musique concrete, ambient & pop. Her work has been heard internationally from 100,000 seat rock festivals, maximum-security prisons, and rural bars, to art galleries, bunkers, sidewalks, sacred spaces, and some of the most prestigious concert halls, museums, clubs and theaters in the country. Believing that “art is the discipline of being,” Fleenor uses sound to open the channels of communication between and within individuals and environments. Her work as been heard in live music, recordings, theater, performance art, installation, modern dance, and film.
That being the case, her work is best understood when heard rather than merely described. Music lovers can experience Beth Fleenor’s musical vision at the White Horse Black Mountain on Wednesday, September 19 at 7:30 p.m.
The busy Fleenor can be found actively performing with Crystal Beth & the Boom Band (a pop dance punk project), Workshop Ensemble (which performs Fleenor’s chamber works grounded in her Blindfolded Performance and Conduction practices), Samantha Boshnack Quintet, Wayne Horvitz: Royal Room Collective Music Ensemble, Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble, Double Yoko, Figeater, and Zubatto Syndicate. She has been based in Seattle since 1998.
