Wilson Shook & Beth Graczyk will perform a rare collaborative set at!


Seattle saxophonist Wilson Shook makes music like a moth fluttering at a street light.

Graceful, frantic, persistent and sometimes tragic, it is music absorbed of its own inscrutable purpose. It finds serenity in immediacy, escape in acts of radical presence. It is here, and then it is not.

Wilson performs frequently as a soloist; less frequently as a collaborator or interpreter of other fabulous artists in the worlds of Free Improv/Free Jazz/Noise/Other/etc. He also helps to organize Seattleā€™s Gallery 1412 collective.

Beth Graczyk is a choreographer, a performer and a scientist. For the past 15 years, Graczyk has performed throughout the United States and internationally in Japan, Ecuador, France and India.
