Crystal Cortez is a process oriented composer, sound & visual artist. Regardless of medium, she uses her art as a tool to transmit healing energy and discover answers to life’s important questions. In her music she creates restorative sound rituals by hybridizing synth loops with field recordings and objects from her environment, resulting in auditory landscapes both alien and natural. Her approach found its home in the Portland underground experimental scene where the lines between music, noise and performance art are blurred. Crystal’s work has been shown at the Paragon Art Gallery (pdx), Teros Gallery (San Diego), PAM Residencies (LA) and has been performed throughout the midwest and west coast. https://www.crystalcortez.com/

Francisco Botello is a sound artist and composer born and raised in Chula Vista, California. Growing up a dual citizen on the dividing line between the United States and Mexico, his work reflects on the nature of place and belonging. Gathering and composing with field recordings, he explores questions of identity, ancestry, geography, change and loss. Recently, he has been experimenting with gestural control and immersive, multi-channel sound systems as ways to connect his soundscapes more intimately with his body and audience. http://franciscobotello.com/
