SOUND ROOM XXVI
Rosen is the ever-evolving live platform for sonic and ephemeral works by artist Rachael Melanson. With a process that involves creating, interpreting, channeling (((sonic))) environments and non-linear narratives, Rosen’s performances are often described as diverse and cinematic, incorporating familiar musical motifs within unfamiliar terrain.
Rachael/rosen has performed in variety of spaces in Vancouver, Melbourne, New Zealand, UK and Berlin. She has recently released the preliminary sequence and tracks of a hypertext narrative, ‘Portals’, in collaboration with London-based electronic music collective Quantum Natives and its affiliated visual studio Werkflow. One of the tracks was featured on The Wire magazine’s ‘Below the Radar’ compilation earlier this year.
Soft Jock is a project in search of an intermediary space between transflective ambience and the hedonistic drive of the dancefloor. With a combination of analog and digital audio tools, the performance echoes and deconstructs the experiences of collective euphoria found in early rave culture.
K. Voveris is also a writer and DJ currently residing in Vancouver, Canada. He hosts a weekly radio show (innerspace FM) that has featured guest appearances by notable underground producers such as Khotin, Jayda Guy, and Neu Balance. As a promoter, he has recently booked and organized live performances for SFV Acid and Lnrdcroy.
