Gregg Kowalsky
Gregg Kowalsky
Gregg Kowalsky's masterful 2017 meditation on radiance – L'Orange, L'Orange – recasts Ambient as a foreground concern, fully embracing it as a pop form. This sun-spotter paints with a pallet of tone and drone, stretching meshes of moiré into pastoral fields of sound, transposing a skyward gaze into a pattern haze. With flecks of magnetism in the air, Kowalsky can turn up the heat in concert, play the room, and simmer in the moment. Working the site specific, and keen to the psycho-acoustic, he lets flow a live electronic music that happens between the ears. Turn your head, hear?
Geneva Skeen
Geneva Skeen
Geneva Skeen is an interdisciplinary artist working in Los Angeles. Influenced heavily by écriture féminine, alchemical metaphors, and a mix of musical traditions ranging from holy mysticism to industrial, Skeen composes with field recordings, digital presets, mixed voice and instrumentation, and both found and filmed video. Her recordings and performances focus on the contrast between facing finite resources of our physical landscapes and their infinite digital representations. Her solo and collaborative works have been presented at REDCAT, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and on the façade of the Armory building in Long Beach, California, amongst others. Her debut, Dark Speech, was released with Dragon’s Eye Recordings in 2016. She is a member of VOLUME, a curatorial collective focused on sound-based practices.

Paul Clipson
Paul Clipson
Paul Clipson is a San Francisco-based filmmaker who often collaborates with sound artists and musicians on films, live performances, and installations. His Super 8 and 16mm films aim to bring to light visual preoccupations that reveal themselves while working in a stream of consciousness manner, combining densely layered, in-camera edited studies of figurative and abstract environments, in a process that encourages unplanned-for results, responding to and conversing with the temporal qualities of musical composition and live performance. His work has screened around the world in festivals and at sound and film events such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, The New York Film Festival, and the Cinémathèque Française. In March and April he will be touring Europe with Jeremy Young and Shinya Sugimoto for sound/film performances in London, Manchester, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Copenhagen and other cities. http://www.withinmirrors.org/
