About the performers:
Sarah Louise is a 12-string guitarist based in the mountains of North Carolina. The impulse for new compositions comes frequently from observing the sounds and movements of the woods around her home. Lush and ethereal at times, yet embracing dissonance as well as tonal and time-signature shifts, her music encompasses a full spectrum of emotions. All-original tunings, picking patterns and bold transitions mark her as a unique player. Scissor Tail Editions released her first album, “Field Guide,” in early 2015, which quickly became an underground favorite. Her new album, VDSQ Volume 12, has garnered praise from media outlets such as NPR and Dusted Magazine and artists like Ben Chasny, who calls Volume 12 an album “that makes me love the sound and possibilities of the acoustic guitar.”
Forest Management is John Daniel (b.1989 in Hemet, CA), an American musician currently living in Chicago, Illinois. The ambient/drone project began in 2011 in Daniel’s hometown of Westlake, Ohio. Daniel uses digitally-processed recordings of sound sources like the piano and synthesizer to sculpt entirely new sonic hues, for the purpose of composition. His warm, fluorescent-like brand of drone has often been said to contain a cinematic, dream-like presence.
Dominic Coppola is an electronic musician based out of Ann Arbor, MI. Pulling sounds from guitar signals, tape manipulations and other unique means, Coppola invents a new breed of ambient transmissions in a dark, yet alluring way.
Autophonia is three folk/drone enthusiasts toying with sounds both dreamy and ethereal via acoustic instruments and electronic pedals.
