Dina Maccabee – Live Session
Violist, vocalist and songwriter Dina Maccabee’s new album The World is in the Work was recorded in one day without overdubs, using viola, voice, looping, and digital effects to create lush textures and spacious soundscapes.
Dina’s distinctive voice has been heard by worldwide audiences through touring as a member of Julia Holter’s live band from 2015 – 2016. Featured on Holter’s 2017 live album release, In the Same Room, her playing can also heard throughout Feist’s 2011 album, Metals, as well as on countless other recordings. On The World is in the Work, her poignant, pared down songs are framed by her unique approach to viola, looping and electronic processing. With nods to maverick string players like Henry Flynt, Laurie Anderson, John Cale, and Arthur Russell, this album also shows the influence of her many years playing folk, pop, and classical music.
Dina was a founding member of Real Vocal String Quartet and the experimental songwriting duo Ramon & Jessica, and she has co-written a new musical premiering in May 2017 in St. Paul, Minnesota. Her previous solo albums include Who Do You Suppose You Are (2010, Contraphonic) and Songs 4 Violin + Voice (2012, self released.) She has also toured with Vienna Teng and Carla Bozulich, recorded with Vetiver, Thao and Mirah, and Beats Antique, and appeared with Sufjan Stevens, Donovan, Sharon Jones, Wilco, and many others. She studied composition at Wesleyan University from 2013 – 2015.

cells – dublab Session
Cells came together in 2011 over loose and improvisational jams on electric guitars and drums. Craving new sonic spaces and fewer limitations, they explored beatmaking, computers and synthesizers. Today, cells explores the balance between freedom in ambient music, bodily and cerebral indulgences in electronics, and emotional release and ease in songwriting. They meld the acoustic and the digital to explore possibilities for union between today’s body and mind.
In January of 2017, original cells member Khalil Abul-Haj passed away. His imprint and influence are featured heavily in cells’ work, both directly as sounds he produced and recorded and indirectly in his continued spiritual presence.
Cells is the Los Angeles based duo of Josh Siegel and Mike Moss. Their debut LP is planned for release later in 2017.
4:00pm – 6:00pm
Hoseh – Version Sounds
“Version Sounds is my interpretation of radio communication, my version. At its roots, the show credits reggae dub for adding so much to the music we listen to today. From there the branches continue to sprout via a myriad of genres and time spans. Colombian cumbias meet Germanic techno dub meets British twee pop. Stereolab and Sun Ra lounge around as Stars of the Lid jam with Prince Jammy. You never know what to expect but you are guaranteed that the now sounds of 2013 will have a toast with the happening sonics of 1968 and beyond!” love, Hoseh
6:00pm – 8:00pm
