(Chapel Performance Space) There's not a lot of Carver Audain music on the web at the moment, but what can be discerned from a couple of YouTube clips is that he's a rigorous minimalist-drone composer whose instincts for glorious, sonorous tone clusters are unimpeachable. Seattle producer/multi-instrumentalist Rafael Anton Irisarri (the Sight Below, Orcas) knows a thing or five about minimalism, drones, and sonorous tones himself. Under his own name, he wrings exquisitely poignant melodies that come to life like aural Monet paintings. He's a master of intimate grandeur. Both artists' music should sound amazing in the Chapel, Seattle's premier space for the sacred act of appreciating rigorous drones.
