NO WEST

NO WEST is a music festival dedicated to developing the fast-growing community of Northwest improvisers. This year, NO WEST presented 34 improvisers from the NW and beyond. Artists from Vancouver B.C., Portland, Bellingham, Olympia, Seattle, NYC, California & Tokyo performed in Seattle & Portland. In addition, this year No West opened its doors to improvisers working in the fields of dance and poetry.

The festival is designed to present improvised music in both informal and formal settings. Each city will host a semi-private daytime show at a player’s home, followed by an evening performance at a public venue. This provides an enriching opportunity for both improvisers and the communtiy. Started in 2005, NO WEST has presented many Northwest musicians in the field of improvised music. Festival organizers have included Gust Burns, Bryan Eubanks, Jonathan Sielaff & Jason E Anderson.
