Classically trained and rigorously de-trained, possessor of a restless, semi-feral spirit, Lori Goldston is a cellist, composer, improvisor, producer, writer and teacher from Seattle. Her voice as a cellist, amplified or acoustic, is full, textured, committed and original. A relentless inquirer, she wanders recklessly across borders that separate genre, discipline, time and geography, performing in clubs, cafes, galleries, arenas, concert halls, sheds, ceremonies, barbecues, and stadiums.

Seattle based drone & noise artist Kole Galbraith approaches the electric bass with both conventional and unconventional manners to explore both the delicacy and gutteral cathartic possibilities achievable with one single instrument. Weaving sound and silence, Kole both mimics sounds found in nature as well as cosmic layers which result in very emotionally expressive pieces.
Portland-based project Juracán was founded by Pierre Carbuccia in 2016. His approach to music focuses on playful encounters based on raw emotion and honesty. Juracán’s sound is influenced by ambient, soundtrack, instrumental, and experimental artists. https://juracanpdx.bandcamp.com Before starting this project, Pierre played bass with Sól (https://solpdx.bandcamp.com/releases) where he toured and collaborated in the writing process for their upcoming album. Before moving to Portland in 2014, he played bass with Vohké (https://youtu.be/5VJIffh00-E) a project he started with two friends in 2011.
