Seattle’s new chamber music series, Kin of the Moon, debuts November 18th at its spiritual home, the Chapel Performance Space, as part of the Wayward Music Series. Composer/vocalist Kaley Lane Eaton, flutist Leanna Keith, and violist Heather Bentley perform an innovative program of new electroacoustic and acoustic music that transcends genre and classification. Featuring Pulitzer-prize finalist Kate Soper’s Only the Words Themselves Mean What They Say, Eaton, Keith, and Bentley’s collaborative electroacoustic improvisation Atmokinesis, and new works from Eaton and others, this program provides a portal into the daring, cutting-edge work of Seattle new music’s iconoclastic women.
Kin of the Moon is an improvisation-centric chamber music series incubated in Seattle's rich musical scene. Headed by violist/improviser/composer Heather Bentley, the group explores sonic rituals, promotes cross-pollination of genres, emphasizes the communicative power of specific performance locales and celebrates the creativity that multiplies itself through the collaboration of performers and composers. The artists of Kin of the Moon devote their lives to reaching higher vibrational levels through sound creation.
