The Seattle Phonographers Union celebrates the release of their eponymous CD, "Seattle Phonographers Union," with two different line-ups of the Union performing each night: Doug Haire, Christopher DeLaurenti, Susie Kozawa, Jonathan Way, and Steve Barsotti on Fri Dec 11 and Heather Perkins, Perri Lynch, Dale Lloyd, Pete Comely, Steve Peters, and Rob Millis on Sat Dec 12.

The Seattle Phonographers Union is a collective of Seattle sound artists who improvise with unprocessed field recordings from around the world. We strive to create compelling juxtapositions of everyday and esoteric
sounds: A flock of pigeons may alight near flowing water and distant temple bells while a long wire fence shimmers and thwaps in the wind.

Each evening opens with a solo set: On Fri Dec 11, Perri Lynch presents Towards Mamori: Field recordings collected from the Mamori Lake region of the Amazon. She combines the nocturnal sounds of insects, tropical birds, river dolphins, frogs, and howler monkeys to explore the strength, fragility, and natural beauty of rain forests near and far. On Sat Dec 12, Christopher DeLaurenti premieres What is Happening in Darfur? along with urban recordings that capture unusual confluences of sound, speech, music, and silence.

Lynch's performance is funded by the City of Seattle CityArtist program while DeLaurenti's set is made possible with support from 4 Culture.
