Zaïmph is the solo project of ambient noise artist Marcia Bassett. Although legendary for white-hot guitar and vocal brutality, Zaimph's recent recordings and performances infuse cracked-raga song structures with dense electronic and synthesizer drones to create soundscapes where a lurking apocalypse is eclipsed by shimmering, meditative beauty.
Zaïmph CDs, LPs and tapes have appeared on independent labels such as Gift Tapes, Hospital Productions, W.M.O.r, Utech Records, Gypsy Sphinx, Volcanic Tongue and No Fun records. Bassett has released numerous Zaïmph recordings on her own Heavy Blossom imprint. In 2012, Bassett retired Heavy Blossom and started Yew, a label showcasing Zaïmph and other aesthetically allied projects.
Pod Blotz has presented specific multi-dimensional performances with sound and video that address hypnosis, geometry, natural phenomenon and psychic transportations. Her music is often accompanied by film, video, shattered mirrors and light art in experiential environments. Her work has been shown at the Berkeley Art Museum, Machine Projects, Cal Poly University, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, 23five Incorporated, The Lab, Queen's Nails Projects, Southern Exposure, San Jose Museum of Art, Transmodern Festival and Portland Institute of Art. She has performed throughout the US and in Europe, and has played many festivals such as No Fun, Colour Out of Space, INC, and Neon Marshmellow Fest. http://suzypoling.com/
Scientifically Speaking with Irene Moon developed around 1997 to elevate entomology as a rock genre. Under the name we have proceeded in creating multimedia environments, organizations, happenings, and music about or inspired by insects. The natural sciences are a perfect art; idealized and often misinterpreted by the public. The Begonia Society installations, presentations, and films introduces factual topics with the creative fascination and detail that could only come out of the intimate relationship a scientist has with his or her subject. Moon herself is a working entomologist presently employed at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. She has the duel focus to advance appreciation of art in the halls of science; as a means of connecting the public to entomology and increasing awareness of the art and creativity intrinsic to the scientific process.
"Uumans is the new project from Matt Mehlan of Skeleton$ & Congotronics Vs Rockers."http://shinkoyo.com/
