Bonnie Whiting & Richard Logan-Greene

Percussionist Bonnie Whiting is interested in music that integrates text, translation, and new sounds. Bonnie performs and commissions new experimental music for percussion, seeking out projects involving non-traditional notation, interdisciplinary performance, improvisation, and the speaking percussionist. She is the Chair of Percussion Studies at the University of Washington, Seattle.

Whiting will perform three pieces that deal with different forms of translation: Vinko Globokar's Toucher (1973), Susan Parenti's Exercise No. 4 for Hands Right, Left and Deserted Mouth (1984), and Richard Logan-Greene's Your Thoughts While Listening (2014).

Richard Logan-Greene is a composer, compositional auto-neurologist, improviser, and instrument tinkerer. He will be presenting compositions and improvisations involving his experimental, interactive "Brainstem Cello."

Laylah Ali
Paintings and Drawings

Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
