Noel Kennon (Seattle) in an improvised first meeting with locals Danishta Rivero, Wilson Shook, Matt Ingalls, Kevin Corcoran, Jacob Felix Heule

Aine E. Nakamura & Adrian Montufar
Aine and Adrian investigate the voice and the body through collaborative performances of sound and movement. By embracing the body as a site of intuition, they enact practices of collective care, listening and sounding with and beyond the body, and imagining future possibilities of a communal language.

Foot SOS (Theresa Currie, Dianne Lynn, Angela Roberts)
FootSos...Sticky sweet
Is these three ladies or what
with some secret
returning to subterfuge
or something like a tribute band
of lost nostalgic selves.
Is it bad times for gluttons and
low-carb false consciousness?
Or the burnt burrito butt
of at least one former sugar baby
turned sugar cougar. Vegan nut cheesin'
in the Bay 100% natural flavoring.
Tartine dumpstering:
A collective fiction or queef
centric punning? Memorable ditties!
Definitely 85% human.
Or more like uhhhh 2sweet 2B 4 gotten.

Aine E. Nakamura creates transborder art of voice and body, through sung voice, movements, and personal ethnography. Her recent solo performances include a Winning Work for Site-Specific Performance at 2022 Venice Biennale, and her performance project at Berliner Festspiele's 2022 Theatertreffen. She has presented solo exhibition at The Gallatin Galleries NY, mixed art and compositions at Berlin University of the Arts, The LAB, HfM Hanns Eisler Berlin, Errant Sound, A Concert of Electronic Music in honor of Mario Davidovsky, Dias de Música Electroacústica, SEAMUS Conference, NYCEMF performed with cellist Madeleine Shapiro, October New Music Festival in Finland performed with MikroEnsemblen, and Abrons Arts Center with the International Contemporary Ensemble. Aine is a Doctoral student at UC Berkeley.

Adrian Montufar’s artistic practice unfolds in the worlds of free improvisation, contemporary concert music, and sound art, where he engages with the connections between the voice and the body, exploring how technology can extend and disrupt this relationship.
Adrian is currently a student in the PhD program in Music composition at UC Berkeley with a Designated Emphasis in New Media. Before coming to Berkeley, he completed an MMus in Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths (UK).
Adrian was born in the U.S., grew up in Ecuador, and moved to New York at age 17.
