BIOS:

Andrea Pensado

After rigorous academic studies as a composer, Andrea Pensado finds herself playing frequently at noise shows and improvising with the most aesthetically diverse musicians. This totally unexpected and joyful turn in her life took place very gradually. Nowadays, Pensado uses voice and electronics to make her music. The approach to both, programming and performance is highly intuitive. The harsh cut up noise result, mixed with the strong emotional component of her music, generate a deeply personal sonic language which often gives rise to intense responses in the most varied audiences. Pensado performs extensively in the US and abroad. She also produces Sonorium, a series of experimental music based in Salem, MA. More info: http://www.andreapensado.com

A 2015 transplant to Baltimore from New Mexico’s rich experimental music scene, CK Barlow turns real-time and field recordings into performable solo pieces using a variety of hardware instruments, laptops and mobile devices. As an ensemble player, CK spent 14 years with the acclaimed avant-orchestral conduction-improv group Out of Context using a custom live-sampling setup. Other NM bands included Useless Eaters (w/JA Dino Deane and DJ Ultraviolet), and mJane with Molly Sturges — along with a variety of rock, metal and salsa bands. She has scored two feature-length films and dozens of short films, theater productions and choreographic works; and has had music used in more than 190 different television series. She will be performing with additional musicians, employing her dynamic live sampling system. CK will be joined by Michael Foster, Sandy Ewen, and Bob Bellerue. Photo credit: Karen Milling.

Octonomy is the moniker of Heidi Lorenz, a Brooklyn-based sound artist. Octonomy spans multiple genres; from noise and drone to darkwave, industrial & techno. She uses found sounds, voice, field recordings, power tools, noise sequenced through distortion, reverb and hardware synthesizers to create textural soundscapes that vary in structure and duration. In addition to performance and DJ work, she has also done a number of extended sound compositions and sonic programming/design work for experiential spaces and installations. Thematically, her work delves into motifs of loss, repressed desires, occultism & anti-capitalism.

JoAnn McNeil

While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JoAnn McNeil has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all (and, yes, in fact “noise” as evidenced by pieces like “Invisa Cell” with its Suzanne Cianni-esque dirge or the ambiance of “Blind Eye” and its Top 40 dance hit in a post Weyland-Yutani world) suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly. Yet, here we are, finally witnessing an artist gently exploding (if you will) from the strange environs of her birthplace of St. Louis (as documented in the photography series “Broken Homes”) and onto stages, galleries, and afro-futurist festivals from St. Louis to Philadelphia. Though it must be said: JoAnn McNeil is not a noise musician or sonic landscaper, but a being kemetically tethered to this world, speaking in vibrations and alien choral hums. JoAnn McNeil's photography and design are not washed out moments of contemplative exhibitionism, they're active sigil work fused together from a shattered kaleidoscope and pixelated cels mimeographed from Octavia Butler's lost visions. While McNeil's love of creating cut-n-paste soundtracks from glitches that have returned from space with modular synths and various apps remains, it is in the synthesis of the visual, the kinetic, and the spiritual that empowers her work. In the presence of such visionary work as the “Ghost Sheets” series where physiological representations of depression and internal conflicts are navigated through stark, digitally manipulated photographs, it becomes clear: JoAnn McNeil is not a multi-disciplinary artist, she's a self-contained, time displaced spirit vessel with dials set to liberation. - Alex Smith.

Kjostad

Kjostad is the moniker of Stefan Aune who is also involved in Form Hunter and Breaking The Will, in addition to running the prolific New Forces label. Kjostad weaves together an organic tapestry of man-made and natural sonics. Capturing highly personal sounds focused on northern Minnesota, Aune takes these moments and introduces layers of electronics and magnetic tape, not just blending the two but utilizing the strong qualities of both to achieve an even more impactful statement that expresses the ultimate power of pure sound. The project has been featured in the pages of The Wire and Special Interests Magazine. Kjostad's next full length CD will be available from Chondritic Sound in 2020. More info: https://kjostad.bandcamp.com

Sour Spirit

Confession: there have been more start-stops to this bio than there are in Fugazi’s entire post-Repeater catalog. “Sour Spirit are a cross between Sun Ra and Lightning Bolt that….” hmm, no. “Sour Spirit, an entanglement of the fuzz ‘n bang of pre-fame grunge and a Yoko Ono unmastered mix tape…” Nah, I’ve got it: Sour Spirit are two brothas who are brothers making waves of harsh noise with free jazz flourishes, playing within and in spite of traditional rock structures. Meets Unwound. And though there are flashes of sounds that recall something that feels familiar, that familiarity is not nostalgic, it’s primordial. See them live, change your life. -Alex Smith . More info: https://sourspirit.bandcamp.com/

Spirit Plate utilizes reciprocal feedback loops, electronics, prepared guitar and drumming to create ecstatic noise improvisations that invoke sacred trance and drone traditions. Galindo is a current 2020 Tulsa Artist Fellow and Young is a 2020 recipient of the George Kaiser Family Foundation Arts Integration grant.

Street Rat

Street Rat is not a person but a cognitive and spiritual exploration of the mysteries of life. It is the eye on the ground that sees and translates all intersecting issues as they merge, explode, dissolve, and implode. A love and hatred for humanity and an embrace to nature. Always morphing and always growing.

Gladys Harlow, the vessel, is from Miami, FL currently wandering in old Philadelphia haunts. She is a sound based performer, visual artist, writer, comedian, and activist experimenting with found objects, contact mics, textures, range, analog formats, present moments, and empathy. Through raw avant-garbage performance art, she aims to breakdown barriers of fear, social capital, mental instability, environmental injustice, and economic disparity to regain our human rights, protect the land, and find our deep truth.
