DSE: A platform for the production and dissemination of electronic noise, noise actions, and processed recordings. Utilizing analogue and digital source material and processing techniques, DSE emphasizes the destabilizing of structural authority and intelligibility of language, including its political, sonic, and spatial orientation.
Burnt Dot: An Los Angeles based noise and experimental jazz ensemble founded by Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet) and Ryan Gaston (modular synthesizer).
Reid and Gaston started Burnt Dot to explore open forms of spontaneous creation. The group is a fluid ensemble of sound and visual artists who are committed to creating work that is as quirky, fiery, and thought-provoking as the world that inspires it.
Burnt Dot’s performances range in scope from art museums and concert halls to intermedia installations and site-specific improvisations. Equally committed to outreach and education, Burnt Dot frequently presents workshops and lectures to students in music, improvisation, and creative technology at universities such as California Institute of the Arts, University of Oregon, Hendrix College, and UC Irvine, among others.
soundShoppe: A free monthly unstructured sound workshop/noise jam for experimental musicians and sound artists presented by SASSAS and Center for the Arts Eagle Rock.
VJ Astralviolet: Live visual artist based in Orange County, California.
