Substrata Festival 1
The first Substrata Festival explores varying perspectives of scale though the use of sound, composition, and visuals. Opening night focuses on non-traditional approaches to the electric guitar: Australia's OREN AMBARCHI presents his brand of immersive, experimental drone-ambient music. ELUVIUM performs new compositions for piano and drone guitar. Portland's MARCUS FISCHER showcases his audiovisual works. Canadian sound artist CRYS COLE opens the showcase, performing with contact microphones, minimal signal processing and no-input mixing board.
