INDIRA VALEY (Pdx) is a queer Latina multi-disciplinary performance artist and avant-garde musician. She channels powerful songs that reverberate with the voices of her ancestors and speak directly to modern audiences. Her ancient-sounding, resonant voice is a force of nature, and she utilizes a unique palette of instruments (flugelhorn, timpani, kalimba, bike wheel, and electric guitar) with effects pedals to create mesmerizing and memorable live performances that are ever-changing due to her spontaneous improvisational magic.
A STICK AND A STONE (Philly / OR Woods) crafts haunting, minimalist, choral-ridden song-spells on electric bass laced with improvised strings, ambient field recordings, and poetic imagery. Led by an openly trans and disabled vocalist-composer, A Stick And A Stone is devoted to shedding light on the unseen and unheard. A Stick And A Stone uses music to converse with nonhuman life forms, fallen friends, and mysterious forces with reverent inquiries into surviving and restoring our fractured world. A Stick And A Stone has been found touring across this continent for the past 11 sun cycles.
OKA AMNESIA (Amnesia Anhedonia) is a performer and videographer based in Seattle and Chicago. Their work is informed by diasporic Rroma and indigenous Quileute ancestry, in dialogue with Queer genealogies, and in process with experiences of crisis and catharsis as a consensual sex worker and survivor of pre-verbal trauma. Their artwork is a vessel for liminal spaces of communion.
BLESSED BLOOD is an electronics-based project by Seattle’s Rachel LeBlanc. Utilizing hardware effects to expand upon the natural resonances of singing, she processes harmonies into ecstatic hymns, wherein ethereal vocals glide above pulsations and sharp angles. The sound is informed by the artist’s life-long home of the PNW, traditional music forms and choral assemblies, and the exploration of history both personal and cultural, resulting in what is at once familiar and unsettling.
