Erika Bell
Erika Bell is a Los Angeles based composer drawn to intuition, preference and the personal. The result of these three things often show up in ways that are spacious, textural, and melancholy. Her work is lightly focused on textural construction, irregular ensemble groupings, and a structure-based approach. Bell’s Sucking Stones (2017) for large-ensemble was performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as part of L.A. Phil’s 2017 Noon to Midnight concert. In the same year she was commissioned by the wulf. for their Open Source series where she premiered 2+ (2017) for soprano, electronics, electric guitar, cello, and contrabass. In 2018 she premiered its companion piece 1-, for the same ensemble and was commissioned again for the wulf.’s Open Source series where she performed Solo Study for voice, contact mic, portable speakers, pedals, and sine tones. Bell premiered < | > (2018) for large-ensemble in Dog Star Orchestras fourteenth festival. This September her piece 1- will be performed at the Göteborg Art Sounds festival in Sweden. Currently Bell is preparing two album-length audio releases of her music and preparing an installation version of her large-ensemble work Moving Like Icebergs Against Each Other (2018). Bell performs on guitar, vocals, keyboards, objects, and sundries in: Erika Bell (experimental singer-songwriter project), Mush Pot (post-punk/performative/art-rock band), Dog Star Orchestra (experimental music ensemble/festival in L.A.) and other occasional projects.

Erika holds a BFA in music composition from California Institute of the Arts where she studied with Michael Pisaro and Laura Steenberge.
Shelter Death
Shelter Death is the audio/performance project amongst many by Christopher Reid Martin, sound, video, and performance artist now residing in Los Angeles. Initially started strictly as experimentation with sound in Orange County, unorthodox recording methods and unconventional sound sources such as broken amps and manipulated radio signals were used to produce a handful of cd-rs and tapes released on Via Injection, Irrational Tenttent, and A.C.T.I.O.N. Rarely performed live, Shelter Death has played a handful of west coast shows from 2012-2015 incorporating ladders, overhead projectors, and sound into a subversively narrative expressive performance. Los Angeles experimental label Crystalline Morphologies will be releasing S. Death’s I Cannot Hear the Filthy City in August of 2018 marking three years since the last release.
