Gabie Strong – dublab Session
Photo credit: Agnes Bolt
Gabie Strong is a California artist and musician exploring spatial constructions of degeneration, drone and decay as a means to improvise new arrangements of self-reflexive meaning. Strong uses sound performance, radio broadcasting, environmental installation, photography and video as a mediums for experimentation. Current themes in her work address the use of ritual acts and fetish collecting to expose constructions of feminine being.
Strong uses her experimental music radio program “Crystalline Morphologies” as a platform to broadcast discursive music in the expanded field. In 2016 Strong launched the Crystalline Morphologies music label to further expand this field and release work referencing the mineralogical process of crystal growth – the process by which organic materials take shape under the influence of environment and time. As a musical concept, it speaks to the self-reflexive dialectic formed between structured composition and improvisational acts as they unfold over time.
Her work has been presented at The Broad, UCLA Hammer Museum, Sierra Nevada College, Current LA: KPARK, MOCA, Los Angeles Contemporary Archive, Pasadena Armory Center for the Arts, Knowledges at Mount Wilson Observatory, Pitzer Art Galleries, University Art Gallery UC Irvine, LAXArt, Printed Matter’s LA Art Book Fair, Art Los Angeles Contemporary, Human Resources, SASSAS, LACE, High Desert Test Sites, LACMA, the MAK Center for Art and Architecture, and Jabberjaw. www.gabiestrong.com

Daniel Corral – dublab Session
Daniel Corral performs his new piece Refractions with guitarist Jeremy Kerner and the Isaura String Quartet. Refractions is a 45 minute electro-acoustic chamber work that expands on his ten years of exploring the sonic and sculptural possibilities of music boxes. Composed for string quartet, electric guitar, and electronically processed music box, Refractions combines ethereal ambient electronics with contemplative acoustic timbres. Featuring prog rock/metal guitarist Jeremy Kerner, the Isaura String Quartet, and Daniel Corral on music box and laptop, the music is a spacious continuum of composed structures, improvisation, and overlapping textures.
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
