Racer Sessions

Sundays, 8-10pm - Café Racer - Seattle, WA

Gwenk - December 7, 2014


Gwenk is a collaborative quartet that focuses on original, creative music. This music aims to explore range, texture and form. Gwenk is made up of Troy Shieffelbein (bass), Matt Singler (drums), Andrew Coulter (trombone) and Katie Levine (piano).

For this Sunday’s Racer Session, I would like to limit improvisations to three minutes or less. This is an exercise in actively listening, commitment to ideas, and eliminating passivity. Limiting length forces us to make everything we play crucial to the development of the piece.
