Barn Owl, Date Palms, Ensemble Economique, Films by Paul Clipson
"Vibration of sound and light simultaneously trace and pass through our corporeal lines. Every micro-component that forms their mass picks a string of our being to weave a cocoon of encompassing space and time. With seemingly effortless fluidity, each of these artists have honed the ability to masterfully craft and set these cocoons adrift towards the vast terrains of the void that stand at the peak of heightened awareness." - The Liminal

Barn Owl is a psychedelic drone band from San Francisco, California, USA, formed by Evan Caminiti and Jon Porras in 2006. "Barn Owl makes densely layered guitar music that is equal parts heavy and beautiful." - Tomas Palermo
Based in Oakland, California, Gregg Kowalsky and Marielle Jakobsons share internationally-spanning solo careers as creative practitioners with a solid foundation in drone music composition and performance. However, it is a mutual love for analogue electric sound sources and tape multitracking that has resulted in their psychedelic, trance-inducing collaboration as Date Palms.
Paul Clipson's projected Super 8 films will accompany each set. Clipson "tak[es] great advantage of the small-gauge camera's pencil-like responsiveness to movement, [and] works from a keen appreciation for the interrelation between fine-grained detail and expansive volumes." - Max Goldbeg
