INDIRA VALEY (Pdx) is a queer Latina multi-disciplinary performance artist and avant-garde musician. She channels powerful songs that reverberate with the voices of her ancestors and speak directly to modern audiences. Her ancient-sounding, resonant voice is a force of nature, and she utilizes a unique palette of instruments (flugelhorn, timpani, kalimba, bike wheel, and electric guitar) with effects pedals to create mesmerizing and memorable live performances that are ever-changing due to her spontaneous improvisational magic.
A STICK AND A STONE (Philly / OR Woods) crafts haunting, minimalist, choral-ridden song-spells on electric bass laced with improvised strings, ambient field recordings, and poetic imagery. Led by an openly trans and disabled vocalist-composer, A Stick And A Stone is devoted to shedding light on the unseen and unheard. A Stick And A Stone uses music to converse with nonhuman life forms, fallen friends, and mysterious forces with reverent inquiries into surviving and restoring our fractured world. A Stick And A Stone has been found touring across this continent for the past 11 sun cycles.
OKA AMNESIA (Amnesia Anhedonia) is a performer and videographer based in Seattle and Chicago. Their work is informed by diasporic Rroma and indigenous Quileute ancestry, in dialogue with Queer genealogies, and in process with experiences of crisis and catharsis as a consensual sex worker and survivor of pre-verbal trauma. Their artwork is a vessel for liminal spaces of communion.
BLESSED BLOOD is an electronics-based project by Seattle's Rachel LeBlanc. Utilizing hardware effects to expand upon the natural resonances of singing, she processes harmonies into ecstatic hymns, wherein ethereal vocals glide above pulsations and sharp angles. The sound is informed by the artist's life-long home of the PNW, traditional music forms and choral assemblies, and the exploration of history both personal and cultural, resulting in what is at once familiar and unsettling.
GALLERY 1412 is a performance venue which operates as a collective of independent artists. Our purpose is to provide a supportive and approachable non-commercial event space for other artists from Seattle and around the world. We see this project as an expression of real grassroots creativity and a way of building, maintaining and sharing resources and infrastructure that are independent of state and commercial interests.
$5-15 suggested to support the performers and space.

Lamon Manuel is an independent rap artist from the Southside of Chicago, and founding member of the prolific rap brotherhoods Tomorrow Kings and FUTURE CULT LEADERS of AMERICA (FCLA).
Manuel is a writer’s writer whose art is a campaign for personhood, aiming to break the presumed rap binary: “positive, conscious rap” or “gangsta rap.” His sad-boy-adult-angst, smart-rap style is imaginative, humorous, richly poetic and is marked by gratuitous film and literary references.
Contrary to the performance-artist paradigm of accepting the sacrifice of writing for song beats and/or performance, Lamon Manuel has perfected a recording and performance style that is just as captivating as his writing. His beat taste is perfectly congruent to his writing style and larger than life performance.
Driven by the idea that any performance could be one’s last, Manuel melds rapping and an element of theater to performance to deliver an unforgettable experience for every crowd.
Manuel recently described his work as “a series of choreographed panic attacks when played forward.” Padded beneath lush imagery, Manuel’s work presents as vulnerable. He invites an intimate look into topics typically cloaked in silence, such as Black mental health, the dissonance between non-Black fan enjoyment of Black art and real life engagement with Black people, substance and sexual abuse, body image issues, experiences in love from the Black male perspective, family dynamics, and male privilege
DOLL FOOD is a sound and voice project. Tape released on Not Not Fun Records in 2014. She will be performing all new sounds.
One of Denver’s most riveting live acts, electronic noisepop duo church fire has “refined glitchy, experimental synth pop into something darker – still playful, but seething with bombastic energy. [They] masterfully straddle the line between noisy experimentalism and accessible songwriting…an inspired and confrontational vocalist [throws] herself fearlessly into every performance with an intensity and theatrical flair that is at once funny, scary and uncompromising.” -Westword’s Critic’s Choice.
Described by 303 Magazine as “an entrancing electronic exorcism,” Shannon Webber and David Samuelson make up a “dramatic music force that you can only begin to understand after seeing church fire perform live.”
church fire’s unique approach to witch house/dance music and their undeniable punk aesthetic make them a versatile fit on any bill. Their latest full length album, pussy blood, was released by MC Sole (Anticon) on his Denver label Black Box Tapes.
Mirror Fears is the dark ambient beat-driven solo project of Kate Warner, based in Denver, CO. Described as experimental synth-pop and avant-garde electronica, Mirror Fears draws upon the minimalist approach of XX, the lush textures of M83, and the harshness of Gazelle Twin. She will be touring the South and Midwest with her new full-length album Eaten, out in October 2017 on the new Denver label Abstract Without Abstraction.
"Mirror Fears ventures into territory blazed by Swedish duo The Knife, posing some heady ideas in the guise of gloomy dance production and displaced beats." -Matthew Stieb, San Antonio Current
"...shimmering, downtempo melodies brightened by moments of tonal incandescence" -Tom Murphy, Denver Westword
Homeroom, Spudnik Press, and Experimental Sound Studio are thrilled to annouce Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices.
The fifth and most conceptually broad iteration of Ten x Ten, ‘Ten x Ten 2017: Dual Practices’ brings together 10 notable Chicago artists who have robust practices in both visual art and music. By considering questions about boundaries and location, Ten x Ten 2017 will investigate Chicago neighborhood identities, urban change, and comfort in space and place.

The results of these partnerships will be released with a concert and gallery exhibition at Experimental Sound Studio on Saturday, September 9th. The artists will perform excerpts from their collaborations and display their prints as well as other work.

Melina Ausikaitis / Ambrosia Bartošekulva

Let us dance the circle round
Thirsting for light as darkness ends
Gather as strangers, leave as friends."
