About the artists:
Signal Quest is a Minneapolis/Oakland-based project between Lynn Avery, Cole Pulice and Mitch Stahlmann. It focuses on playable networks structured in hardware, software, and electro-acoustic processing that are intended to connect, record, and react as an organism. Signal Quest is a final rendering of fantastical planes that spontaneously emerged through a summer practice in 2019. The resulting play is for the listener to immerse oneself within; perhaps as an avatar, or as a sprite floating through interconnected portals and viewports.
Public Speaking is the solo project of Brooklyn sound artist and songwriter Jason Anthony Harris. He uses voice, objects, electronics, and traditional instrumentation to make soulful modern music. He balances adventurous methods with an intimate compositional aesthetic.
Jeremy dePrisco (aka Shivasongster) is a Pennsylvania musician, composer, performer, and sound artist using improvisation, collaboration, and noise to examine and recontextualize the alienation inherent in media influence, socially constructed reality, conspiracy, and myth. He works with field recordings, guitar, electronics, synthesizers, radios, found sounds, home-made gadgets, and processed video. A fixture in the electro-music community for the past decade, Jeremy currently presents solo and collaborative sound explorations throughout the Tristate area.
Jacoti Sommes is a prolific Ohioan multi-instrumentalist, electro-funk producer, composer, and hardware maestro well known in his native Columbus, Ohio for captivating performances with his performance art group Hug’s and Kisses. You may have witnessed his live performances in venues like Wexner Center for the Arts, Columbus Museum of Art, or in a more intimate Brooklyn loft space improvising and crafting minimal techno rhythms.
