Basement State presents an immersive evening of light and sound featuring Lightbath, Gisselle Gabrielle Garcia, and Planar Drift. Visuals will be provided by Former and set break music by Herr Shield.
Composer and improviser Bryan Noll explores time and space with his musical project, Lightbath. Taking inspiration from Brian Eno’s view of composers as gardeners, Noll plants musical seeds with his synthesizers and, through improvisation, guides their development and growth into pieces that unfold in the present moment.
Giselle Gabrielle Garcia is a performing artist living in the PNW. She is known for mixing classical composition structures and harmonies with electronic music and pop, using synthesizers including the Juno-60, piano, and Buchla music easel. Her background as a pianist, dancer, and scientist lend themselves to the strong technicality as well as musicality and emotional presence of her work. She lives in Olympia, WA, where she works as an electronic musician, circus artist, and coach.
Planar Drift is the musical project of Seattle’s Duffy Kingsolver. He forms sonic textures in multiple genres using analog and digital synthesis. He is a founding member of Basement State.
Basement State is a Seattle-based live electronic music collective that curates in-person and online events where resident artists and guests perform LIVE original music across an array of electronic genres. Their first compilation release, Vol. I, was released on cassette and in digital form in August 2021.
