Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith

Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith's formative years were spent communing with nature on Orcas Island in the northwest region of Washington state, a place she describes as "one of the most magical and peaceful places I have ever been." Though she wouldn't begin experimenting with modular synthesis until many years later, her creative work continues to be infused with and inspired by the vitality and serenity of Orcas.
Smith left the island to attend Berklee College of Music, where she studied composition and sound engineering, initially focusing on her voice as her primary instrument, before switching to classical guitar and piano. She employed many of the skills she refined in college in her indie-folk band Ever Isles, but a fateful encounter with a neighbor who lent her a Buchla 100 synthesizer, had a profound effect on her. Mesmerized by the Buchla’s potential, she explains "I got so distracted and enamored with the process of making sounds with it that I abandoned the next Ever Isles album." Starting with rhythmic patterns and melodic pulses, she soon began sculpting lush and exciting worlds of sound.

Panabrite is Seattle musician Norm Chambers. His music evokes the prime work of ambient music’s pioneers, the top tier of kosmische-musik makers, and the more mystical end of the new-age spectrum. He weaves elements from these styles into his own distinctive tapestries, balancing melodic playfulness with compositional rigor.

Bardo:Basho (Seattle's Kirsten Thom) has been angling her live performances increasingly toward minimal, hypnotic techno, with impressive results. Her recent set for Femmecult reveals the mellifluously melodic and haunting atmospheric qualities of her productions of late. She's part of a new wave of electronic musicians in Seattle and Tacoma associated with the secondnature crew who are elevating the scene.
