Sleeping bags welcome at ‘Space Weather Listening Booth’

From Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times arts writer and wide-ranging wanderer:

It’s not every art venue that includes instructions to “BYOSleepingBag” when announcing an upcoming event. The event in question: The unveiling of “Space Weather Listening Booth” in the basement of Belltown’s Interstitial Theatre.

“Booth” is the brainchild of Seattle composers Nat Evans and John Teske. Its purpose is to create “an immersive acoustic and electronic piece based on the aurora borealis.” Musicians Tom Baker (theremin and electronics), Naomi Siegel (trombone), Evan Smith (saxophone) and composer Evans himself (percussion) will serve up live accompaniment to a 50-minute cycle of electronic sounds. Musicians and electronics, alike, will surround the audience.

“Attendees are encouraged to bring pillows, sleeping bags, blankets, etc.,” Evans writes, “for maximum enjoyment of the immersive surround-sound experience.” 8 p.m. Dec. 6, Interstitial Theatre, 2231 First Ave., Seattle; $5 suggested donation.
