Orchestra Becomes Radicalized:
Featuring members of AU, Golden Retriever, Like a Villain, Why I Must Be Careful, Dragging an Ox through Water, Smegma, Dolphin Midwives, Thicket, and The Crenshaw, Orchestra Becomes Radicalized is a supergroup of Portland’s most creative musical minds and hearts coming together to forge an intricate and powerful work of sonic art.

Musician and writer John Niekrasz returns to Portland to direct his second annual Orchestra Becomes Radicalized:
Holland Andrews (voice, electronics)
Luke Wyland (keys)
Brian Mumford (guitar, electronics)
Sage Fisher (harp, voice, electronics)

Visible Cloaks (formerly just "Cloaks") is Spencer D and Ryan C. Their work investigates both inverted pop structures and long-form sound collage in a fluid mix, often with vocoded or modulated voice, digital and analog mallet work, FM synthesis, modular gear, ethnographic samples and other abstracted sound sources beamed straight from the fourth world.


The Ian Christensen Quartet draws inspiration from jazz, rock, and improvised music. Inspired by the works of Sonny Rollins, Thelonious Monk, Albert Ayler, Claude Debussy, and Elliot Smith, Christensen strives to cultivate a new and honest approach, anchored by a strong melodic sensibility and a passion for the unknown. Joined by three of the finest improvising musicians in the Portland area, the quartet explores original music, focusing on ensemble communication and risk taking.
