Sounds et al
and Holocene Portland
present an a night of live electronic music with performances from Patricia Wolf
, Felisha Ledesma
and Chloe Alexandra
All three artists are currently Portland-based, and represent (in the opinion of Sounds et al) the best of the city's electronic music scene. Aside from their own performative practice, all three contribute significantly to the community — perhaps most obviously through Patricia's co-curation of Varifom, Chloe with her role at Open Signal: Portland Community Media Center
and Felisha's passionate work at S1
— but also through their continuing work elsewhere.
Come along for the best sounding Wednesday night of the summer…
