Syrinx Effect is the interstellar folk-punk jazz duo of Kate Olson on soprano saxophone and Naomi Siegel on trombone, plus their pedals, laptop, and other toys. The duo got its start curating the Racer Sessions in Seattle and has gone on to perform prolifically around the US, collaborating with many of the mainstays of the improvised music scene, such as Wayne Horvitz, Robin Holcomb, Elliott Sharp, Bobby Previte, Stuart Dempster, Allison Miller, and Rene Hart. Both maintain busy schedules pursuing individual projects, teaching, and performing with Seattle’s jazz and world music scene. Their first full-length album, A Sky You Could Strike a Match On, is being released in the fall of 2016.

We are an independent press in Seattle, Washington. We publish collaborations between poets and artists of all types. We also have an interest in publishing contemporary Argentinian poetry in translation and supporting writers with an interest in Argentinian culture and Jewish history in Latin America. Gay-owned and queerly run.
A review for "Vicinity/Memoryall" has come in @dramainthehood and, honestly, it's not "GREAT!"— but hurrah for thoughtful reviewers going out to theater. You still have one more weekend to go make up your own mind about this play!
The story of the trunks that hold up the bar at 18th and Union Art Space is fantastic. Real Seattle history in there with Jessie Hass and New City Theater. Tickets to the final weekend of "Vicinity/Memoryall" can be found at Brown Paper Tickets: bit.ly/2NtusV5pic.twitter.com/qa13KTA15f
