Sage Elaine Fisher is an American composer, performer and sound artist based in Portland, OR. She is best known for her performance project, Dolphin Midwives, which abstracts harp, voice and percussion using electronics, extended techniques and ritual processes. She explores themes of empathy, sustainability, vulnerability, transformation and technology through social experiment, meditation, psychoacoustics and ritual. Dolphin Midwives has brought experimental harp to contemporary art centers and venues on the west coast. In June 2019 she placed in Portland’s Best New Band list in the Willamette Week.
Gamelan Wahyu Dari Langit (Gamelan Wahyu for short) is Portland’s first and only Balinese Gamelan. The fast-paced, percussive style of Belaganjur (aka marching Gamelan) is rhythmically layered, metallically hypnotic, raucously defining a sonic ritual space. The name means “Revelation from the Sky”, named after a dear visitor that left this plane of existence far too early. The instruments that comprise Gamelan Wahyu were brought from Bali to Portland in 2015 by the group’s founders, Erica Fuenmayor and Vera Brink. Since then, the main focus has been on building a strong core group of members with which to develop a basic foundation for technical growth and stylistic evolution.
Snakes is a two piece grindcore / powerviolence act who aims to heal the world’s soul through sonic violence. They will be playing their unreleased album “Amphibious//Omnivorous” in it’s entirety, as well as debuting their protest anthem “Fuck I.C.E.”
Mulva Myasis, also known as Noa Ver or half of the band Sea Moss, designs and builds analog feedback oscillators. The synthesizers are housed in found containers and produce a variety of sounds reminiscent of everything from chirping crickets to revving engines to ethereal drones. Mulva acts as conductor and orchestrator, encouraging her oscillators to converse with each other and sing together.
