Mistresses is the new project of Arone Dyer (Buke and Gase, Dronechoir) and Ryan Oslance (Ahleuchatistas) - a long distance musical collaboration most easily described as "Arty Dance Pop" and the duo's live performance is rapidly evolving quality fun and sonic pleasure, consisting of live drums, grimy synth and catalyzing melodic vocals w/harmonies, sometimes involving local dancers for visual spizazz.

KYN is an electronic duo that makes music with an unconscious drive to connect with themselves. Using sound to explore their unconscious emotions that often seem quite difficult to verbalize, KYN invites others to engage with these complex feelings. And we dance.

Noise music of Japanese poetry. IMA is the sound project of Nava Dunkelman x Amma Ateria, marching forth with fearless percussion, stark electronics, and filmic poetic vocals. Deconstructing and dissolving heavy music through restraint and release, IMA strives for a balance between meticulous detailed precision of instrumentation, and chaos of densities driven to brinks of breakage, situated by beautification in between. IMA has been presented in residency at The Stone, New York City (2016) and San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, SF (2016). Performed and collaborated with avant-garde pioneers Ikue Mori, Pauchi Sasaki, Fred Frith, John Zorn, Zeena Parkins, Erik Friedlander, and many others.
