In 1989, guitarist/composer Sue Ann Harkey released The Ancient Past and the Ancient Future Are Both Seconds Away on a tiny indie label. Not many people heard it upon initial release, including me. Twenty-eight years later, I bought a used copy of it because the cover looked interesting and it featured avant-garde Seattle trumpeter Lesli Dalaba. Turns out, The Ancient Past is a masterpiece of politically astute art songs (sung in the deep range of Annette Peacock and Dagmar Krause), minimalist composition, and unconventional tone exploration. Beside working in Seattle’s tech industry for many years, Harkey’s created much interesting music since cutting that under-recognized landmark, often in collaboration with English electronic musician Alexander Deacon. Don’t miss this rare concert by an overlooked genius.
