Over lapping Worlds

Date Palms is Oakland-based musical duo Marielle Jacobsons and Gregg Kowalsky. Sound artist artist violinist Marielle Jakobsons “creates a dim world where Eastern folk melodies meet damaged textures and desolate atmospheres.”-Aquarius “Layered in textures and sound, Jakobsons knows how to weave an immaculate sonic tapestry that is stunning and profound.”-Fina. Gregg Kowalsky’s compositions range from drone and noise pieces to meditative psychedelia, which are highly influenced by the thick, humid air of South Florida where Gregg lived for most of his life. He is interested in filling the spaces his music occupies through dense, live, multi-channel mixes.”- Kranky Kowalsky utilizes…an eclectic array of source material: tape cassettes, sine oscillators, contact mics, bells, bird callers and a computer.- Aquarius “Elm is the solo project of Jon Porras who is half of duo Barn Owl. Porras uses guitars, vocals, harmonium, harmonica, drum and flute combined with a huge amount of talent and imagination to create his own mysterious world. There’s a kind of underlying menace and bleakness but there’s light shining through with gorgeous tones that I find very uplifting.” – Norman Records

SUN CIRCLE is the duo of Greg Davis and Zach Wallace. Psychoacoustic minimalism meets psychedelic maximalism. Ecstatic high volume drones, long form trance musics and peace noise. Bowed strings, voices, organs, percussion, home-made and world instruments. Greg Davis lives in Burlington, Vermont. He has played shows all over the world with many different people and has released solo and collaborative albums on many different labels, including Carpark Records and Kranky. Zach Wallace lives in Swan Valley, Montana. He performs solo, with Memorize the Sky and SUN CIRCLE and has played with people ranging from Tony Conrad to Anthony Braxton.”-On Land Festival
