Lief Hall, Holy Hum, Kayla Guthrie, Anastasia Clarke, Marty (DJ)
LIEF HALL is an interdisciplinary artist and musician living in Vancouver, BC. Previously one half of Canadian 'femme noir' experimental pop duo MYTHS, Hall began her solo music project while living in Berlin in 2014, emerging out of her practice as an audio-visual performance artist, experimental vocalist, and electronic music producer. Her live music performances often incorporate visuals, sets and costumes as well as experimental vocal improvisation. She has performed her solo music alongside such artists as Bear in Heaven and Inga Coupland and was named on NME's list of '50 Brand New Artists Set to Storm in 2015. Hall’s work has been presented and performed in such galleries as the Western Front, Vancouver Art Gallery, Surrey Art Gallery and Mercer Union, and she is currently doing her Masters in Interdisciplinary Studies at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, BC.
ANASTASIA CLARKE (b. 1987, New York) is an American artist working in music, dance, theater, performance art, and performing systems design. Conceiving performance as a modality for improving the quality of human experience, Anastasia is concerned with articulating the many healing and therapeutic efficacies of the live medium. Anastasia lives variably in New York City and Oakland, CA. She is a current 2018 MFA candidate in Electronic Music and Recording Media at Mills College, and also holds a B.A. from Bennington College (2010).
HOLY HUM is the musical project of multidisciplinary artist Andrew Lee.
Over the past 15 years, Andrew Lee has toured extensively across North America and Europe with In Medias Res (File Under: Music) and Siskiyou (Constellation Records). He has shared the stage with Kurt Vile, Julianna Barwick, Damien Jurado, Frog Eyes, Porcelain Raft and many more and has performed at notable festivals such as All Tomorrow’s Parties, Primavera Sound, and Sled Island. He has also presented special artistic works at the Vancouver Art Gallery, The Centre for Performance Research in New York City and Kunstradio in Vienna.
Canadian-born artist Kayla Guthrie charts emotional structures and introspective landscapes via software and analog synthesis and song. Her 12" EP Blue (Mixed Media, 2015) was described by a review in The Wire to "occupy a twilight zone both lyrically and conceptually...as if Guthrie's thoughts and words coincide with an atmosphere that she contingently occupies for this moment." A visual artist as well as a musician, her work and musical performances have been exhibited or occurred at Real Fine Arts, Bodega, Off Vendome, JTT, The Whitney Museum of American Art (in collaboration with Nate Lowman's "Homage To Jay Defeo", 2013), MINI/Goethe Institut Curatorial Residency, Signal, Basilica Hudson, Pioneer Works, Knockdown Center, Deli Gallery, SADE LA, and others.
