Electrogals is an organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring electronic music and digital art by women. For this show, collective members Christi Denton (Portland), Briana Marela (Olympia), and Heather Perkins (Portland) will employ a wide variety of instruments and techniques, including hand-built electronic instruments, cassette-deck-loopers, vocoders, electric guitar, hand-coded music software, and gesture-operated synthesizers, to create rich sonic environments.
Christi Denton is a composer and sound installation artist who works with found sounds, electronics, and homemade and modified instruments. Last month, her laser MIDI controller competed in the 2012 Guthman Musical Instrument Competition.
Briana Marela is vocalist and song conjurer composing with processed vocals and audio samples through Max/MSP. Her first full length album is due out this April on Olympia label Bicycle Records.
