  • The Royal Room 5000 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA, 98118 United States (map)

Stacey Mastrian opens for pianist Jesse Myers' Living in America event,  performing 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-as-composer, from meditative to humorous and theatrical.
