Seeing Double celebrates collaboration and experimentation in electronic music. A night of doubling down and doubling up! Sally Decker and Briana Marela celebrate the release of their new album, Small Tremble in Slow Motion, with local support from Glitter Vomit (Jazmyn Crosby), also celebrating a new release, and 500 Club (Rose Actor-Engel and Carrie Ford DeCunzo).

About the Artists

Glitter Vomit is the solo project of Jazmyn Crosby and has had various collaborators throughout its existence. Originating from New Mexico, Glitter Vomit is currently based out of Philadelphia, PA. Mesmerized by communication and its tools, Glitter Vomit sounds like static—like long slow thoughts, vulnerable sparse and layered guitar, cell phone, radio, and vocals in a labyrinth of loops and collected audio fragments.

Sally Decker is a composer & performer working with feedback systems, synthesizers, text and voice. She is interested in mind-body connectivity, healing processes, and sound as a vessel for practicing presence. She has performed at venues such as The Lab, SFMOMA, Indexical, Pioneer Works, and has been featured by The Quarterless Review, WFMU, and Bandcamp Daily. Her full-length album In The Tender Dream was released in 2021 on NNA Tapes.

Briana Marela Lizárraga is a mixed race Peruvian American composer, performer, and vocalist currently based in Oakland, CA. Her voice is a frequent focal point and ambient texture in compositions, exploring minimal lyrics and text in combination with gestural performance. She is an Allied Arts Foundation Grant recipient as well as an AAUW Career Development Grant recipient. She has toured with artists such as Jenny Hval, Waxahatchee, Emel Mathlouthi and has toured across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and Europe. She has played such festivals as Sasquatch, Decibel, and Green Man (UK). She has been interviewed by Vogue, Interview Magazine, and Billboard. In 2018 she received a commission from Radiolab’s More Perfect Podcast to write a song about the 4th amendment for their album celebrating the constitutional amendments.

Sally and Briana both attended the Electronic Music & Recording Media Masters program at Mills College, and studied with Laetitia Sonami, Zeena Parkins, James Fei, and John Bischoff. They started collaborating while at Mills, and worked remotely on this piece. Using a shared drive and frequent video calls from opposite coasts, this piece was able to emerge intimately despite physical distance.

500club is the collaborative project of Rose Actor-Engel (Apologist, Candy Ricotta) and Carrie Ford DeCunzo (beautywork, Natural Pleasures).

Rose’s composition practice is research based and explores a wide variety of themes including sports, astrology, sex, and isolation. Location based field recordings inform the content of the work. Rose co-operates and co-curates No Rent Records and is based in Philadelphia.

Carrie is interested in perceptions of nature and ecological practice, mapping, and learning what places become through engagement with sound. She works in electronic and acoustic composition, performance, installation, and sculpture. She is currently a graduate student in the Electronic Music and Recording Media MFA program at Mills College.

500club’s debut release, Pluto Return (2021, KSX Solutions), scores the transits of Pluto through the birth chart of the United States and the political implications these transits are posited to signify. Compositional structure and form integrate references from late 1700s musical traditions including Sacred Harp, the practice ‘lining out’ practice of Appalachian folk, the New England Puritan church band, and early American Christian fugue. 500club’s current work in progress is an homage to the namesake, the legendary Atlantic City club of Skinny D’Amato. This is their debut live performance.
