Cleveland-based harpist Stephan Haluska creates abstract compositions for harp exploring its innate textural, harmonic, and percussive qualities. With an electric fan directed at the strings of the harp, the fans air current excites the strings, sounding an evolving, chordal, aeolian drone. This drone is looped, layered, and processed through electronic effects. Manipulated in real time, the drone becomes a distinct, performable instrument, accompanying the harp improvisation.
Nick Zoulek - Leafless Against the Gray Sky (2015), Symmetry in Memories (2016), Silhouette of a Storm Bent Tree (2015)
A saxophonist and cinematographer with an impassioned eye toward the unification of visuals and sound, Nick Zoulek will showcase his interdisciplinary efforts through excerpts from his intermedia project, Rushing Past Willow. Weaving a meditative tapestry of repetition, vocal techniques, and circular breathing, Zoulek pushes past the typical sound of the saxophone, combining it with stunning visuals. What often begins as a recognizable line eventually circles back on itself, erasing ideas about beginnings and endings in the process.
Ben Willis - subatlantic songs (2015-2017)
Ben Willis is a bassist, improviser, and composer based in Detroit. His subatlantic songs is a theatrical performance for amplified double bass and voice. "When I was listening, I saw a desert that was apocalyptically dark and swampy and mossy, and there was this glowing storm that was approaching and it was causing dust to rise from all the dead or, if not, prehistoric animals, first the birds, then the skeletons on the ground, and then the colonies of beetles underground, and they were coming back to life and they knew the approaching storm was going to destroy them but it was also bringing them back to life, so it was all strangely beautiful for them." -Rachel Epperly

Sullivan/Rogers - Remote Cipher (2018)
Following St. Peters veneration in 33, Popebama formed 2000 years later in a swarm of warm honey and wooden harmonicas, collecting sounds of years past and forging textures of tomorrow. NYC-based composer-performer duo, Popebama, will share a program of vocal athletics, electronic wizardry, and high-energy instrumental writing. Shedding Waste communicates a sonic landscape via tightly executed rhythms, hocketing, echoing, mimicking, unisons, quarter tones, multiphonics, vocalizing, and side-by-side comparison where the two instruments coexist and seamlessly drift in and out of two very similar, yet very different and distinct sound worlds. Wormhole focuses on the manipulation of air where each instrument used, from the saxophone, to bellow foot pedals, to whistles, to megaphones, produces their sound via some degree of forced air aided by amplification via standard microphones, contact microphones and capsule microphones to zoom in on each air manipulating action so that each sound may be experienced through the smallest of apertures. Remote Cipher is a co-composed dismantling of sonic matter via acoustic and electronic manipulation.
