While we are in transition and searching for a stable home base, we will continue to produce events with some of our neighborhood partners.

The AltLib Popup Series will present roving events to continue supporting expansive art projects and dig deep for uncommon cultural exchanges. If you’re interested in setting up a show with us, please read our booking page and send us an e-mail.

With his seventh solo album “Broken Silence,” Swiss saxophonist Urs Leimgruber allows more space for the expression of the quiet – a sort of contemplative essence. Having long left the path of powerful electric jazz that characterized his time with “OM” during the 1970s, he has since evolved a delicately sophisticated and often quite abstract style. The nine pieces found on “Broken Silence” have been developed out of silence, which they – mostly gently – break, only to subside back into eloquent silence in the end.

TIME — On tour from Florida, TIME is an improv dance/noise piece performed inside a wall of fabric with interactive projections called Awakening of the Self.

Sage Romey is a Junior at Western, perusing an interdisciplinary degree concentrated in Decolonial Ethnomusicology with a concentration in Africana studies and jazz. Sage was introduced to the joys of music listening to her grandfather’s records and plunking out tunes on the piano next to her mother. Singing since she could talk, and playing piano since she was seven, she has always been drawn to music as a form communication. Today Sage plays with numerous groups through the WWU jazz program and in the community, constantly searching for new sounds and means of expression through music.
