Quantum Natives: Grace Nexus (Brood Ma, Yearning Kru, Rosen)
For his first project as 2017 Suzanne Fiol Curatorial Fellow, DeForrest Brown Jr. organizes the US premiere of Quantum Natives expansive sonic universe. In their debut performance Grace Nexus, the collective forms a new episode in the rhizomatic Quantum Natives universe, extending the collectives expansive online surface to a live setting. The artists will unite to use video game engine technology, paired with software-based sound design, to sculpt birds-eye and panoramic experiences of merging fictional landscapes, physical, and online spaces, which in turn will be projected in ISSUEs theater and online.

Grace Nexus takes place in the Quantum Native world that explores the post-scarcity condition of limitless online content and the idea of grace, the loving gift of divine favor, as a prescriptive measure for reorienting in our increasingly enmeshed online/offline experience. Grace Nexusemerges as a seance or incubator for the Quantum Natives community and an act of tourism into their world.

Conceived by artists/musicians James B Stringer (Brood Ma, Werkflow) and Awe IX (Ornine, Yearning Kru), later integrating Rachael Melansons (Rosen) pOrtals project and DeForrest Brown Jrs Context Collapse, Quantum Natives is an ongoing expression of online personas and a coherent cartographic experience that suggests an organically growing document as narrative. Established in 2013 as an online world-building platform, the collective focuses on digital music and visual art, all of which takes place in a collaborative, ever changing artwork represented as an online map.

Brood Ma is the musical alias of artist James B Stringer, co-founder of Quantum Natives, and Werkflow, a games engine focused, digital arts studio. Brood Ma is a fractured, cybergothic nexus of tropes from weird literature, dystopian rave and high technology, presented in longform performances and recordings that resemble crisis scenarios as much as electronic mixes. The music tends to be oppressively psychedelic, evoking fourth-world entropy, embattled tax-havens, and the aesthetics of simulated combat. As well as a number of digital musical and visual releases on Quantum Natives, Brood Ma has released on labels such as Tri Angle records, Hemlock and Mantile records.

Croydon's Yearning Kru uses digital technology and specifically sampling to make a unique lo-fi psychedelic environment. There is a large visual element with all his artwork self-made and live performances accompanied by his own distinctive visual montages. His work is inspired by the world-building aspect of various literary fantasy environments, especially Gormenghast and Dune, and the music is a psychedelic representation of landscapes rather than narratives of characters (as more song-based music might represent). The music functions as viewpoints into a world for a brief period of time, and the world represented is one of small workshops toiling and churning in the shadow of great hives of technology -- similarly explored on the recent Planet Mu release "Copper Vale.

Rachael Melanson is an transmedia artist from the UK who plays with the fissure between author/reader and online/offline environments, she explores the fluidity of this space, acting as a connective tissue that binds and blurs the divides between. She also performs under the alias, Rosen, and has produced event based works that have been presented at the likes of New Forms Festival (Canada), TARP Audio Visual Poetry Festival (Lithuania), The Audio Foundation and The Physics Room (New Zealand), VOIDOID Archive and the ICA (UK).

P0rtals is an ongoing narrative work by transmedia artist Rosen aka Rachael Melanson, who plays with the fissure between author/reader and online/offline environments. manifested on the site in its first part as a choose your own narrative adventure with accompanying music and visual work. A n would involve using the landscapes built for her video to accompany musical and narrative readings based on one-on-one sessions with players.

Context Collapse is an ongoing project with writer DeForrest Brown Jr., hosted on the site as an essay focusing on accelerationist themes, an exhibition of digital illustrations from various net artists, and an accompanying reading and mix.
