Audrey Chen & Territorial Gobbing
AUDREY CHEN is a 2nd generation Chinese/Taiwanese-American musician born outside of Chicago in 1976. Using the cello, voice and occasional analog electronics, Chen’s work delves deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling. A large component of her music is improvised, is completely un-processed and her approach to this is extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and layering of an analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.
Territorial Gobbing is local musician/improviser who combines extended vocal techniques, cassette tapes, amplified junk and computer noise into high speed absurdist sound collages
Anna Peaker is a visual artist and graphic designer who began working with sound in 2016. Working from a small attic space at home, she uses budget keyboards, drum machines, loops and effects to create microcosmic soundscapes. Sounds are influenced by domestic spaces, how we spend our time in them and escapism from them. She will be presenting a new setup for her work using a hammered dulcimer and some computer assistance

A supergroup of Vymethoxy Redspiders (Guttersnipe, Petronn Sphene), Sydney Coke (Slaylor Moon, The Courtneys) and Layla Legard (Hawthonn).
