Featuring Erin Jorgensen and Cristina Valdes
Curated by James Holt
A drifting, surreal radio transmission from outer space is broadcast directly to your subconscious mind: artist Erin Jorgensen joins forces with Cristina Valdes in a live performance that invites you to dream. The overtones of a 5-octave marimba merge with intimate whispering, stream-of-consciousness thoughts, DIY life philosophy, and beautifully minimal music in a small stab towards enlightenment.
Erin Jorgensen is a musician based in Seattle, WA who works with marimba, vocals, and electronics. When not focusing on solo work she plays music with guitarist Brett Netson (Built to Spill, Earth). Listen to music, watch videos, and subscribe to a free podcast at http://www.erinjorgensen.net/
