Sounds et al presents Apperceptive Moment. Sound artists Ben Glas, Dolphin Midwives, Samson Stilwell and Amenta Abioto mix sound, visuals and movement into a cohesive exploration of the senses. The experimental performance will engage with acoustics, psychoacoustics, physical interaction with sound, movement, music and noise, to lead the audience on a journey through time and space.
Ben Glas is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in Portland, OR. With a keen focus on sonic phenomena and vibration, his work engages concepts of relativity, spacetime and egalitarian modes of experiencing sound.
Dolphin Midwives – Ecstatic noise harp ritual experiments by harpist/sound artist/composer Sage Elaine Fisher.
Samson Stilwell works with sound and language to create art within a lyric tradition. His work often lives within the borders, or between spaces, of language and sound, music and noise, thought space and meat space. His debut release, Signals was released on Sounds et al in 2017.
Songwriter, songstress, and actor, Amenta Abioto is on the cutting edge of all that is musical, theatrical, and literary. Her music is boldly mystical and soul-fired, and her raw live performances invoke elements of both theatrical surprise and magic through ancient African diasporic sounds and stories.
