No one turned away for lack of funds

TIMEGHOST (Providence, Rhode Island)
solo performance by Adam Morosky utilizing modular synthesis, synchronized light, and multi-channel surround sound. Recordings released on Load Records and Chondritic Sound.
“Timeghost pours modular synthesis, drum machines, found sounds, and spoken prose into dense, hot compositions, then squints delightedly at the results. The methodology is a tug of war between chaos and control, allowing stray sounds to cycle off at random, but giving space to work their way back into the fabric.”
-Louis Pattison, The Wire

POD BLOTZ (Los Angeles, California)
solo performance by Suzy Poling utilizing keys/electronics, tape manipulation, and video projections. Recordings released on Nostilevo and Chocolate Monk (UK).
“Pod Blotz uses stark sounds and a relentless beat in grains of smeared pressure, vocalized in a cyclone of clam, furious and pokerfaced, heightening the intensity and leveling piece of mind.”
C Monster, Tiny Mix Tapes
(Suzy Poling recently screened works in Vox’s April Blackbox  installation “Body, Technology, Utopia: Everyday Labyrinths)

Newton
(pronounced: NOO-tən) is the moniker of experimental musician and sound artist Mat Rademan (b. 1979), born and based in the Philadelphia major metropolitan area.
Rademan has created a prolific and profound catalog of recordings, live performances, films and installations since the project’s inception in 1995. His sound works are a singular blend of electronics, pedals, voice, cassette recorders, contact microphones, and occasional nonmusical devices. Seamlessly incorporating various techniques of musique concrète, noise music, turntablism, Fluxus, anti-music, field recording, glitch, and sometimes even performance art into his work, the result is a tightly composed sonic assault steeped in both theory and practice as can only be achieved by a seasoned veteran. Rademan also runs the prolific Philadelphia sound label Breathmint, founded in 1995.
Isolde Touch

Asha Sheshadri (Isolde Touch) is a multimedia artist working out of Philadelphia. Her work hinges on experimentation and abstraction through archival material, speech synthesis, original texts, computer, and piano, and her latest recording “Secretary of Sensation” was released on Entr’acte Recordings. (Asha Sheshadei also recently screened work in Vox’s April Blackbox installation “Body, Technology, Utopia: Everyday Labyrinths)
