Chris Kissel w/guest Geneva Skeen – Contact Wave
Hosted by Los Angeles DJ and journalist Chris Kissel, Contact Wave enthusiastically celebrates the best experimental, avant garde, psychedelic, and off-the-grid music crafted in L.A. and beyond.
This week’s episode features guest Geneva Skeen. Skeen is an interdisciplinary artist working in Los Angeles. Influenced heavily by écriture féminine, alchemical metaphors, and a mix of musical traditions ranging from holy mysticism to industrial, Skeen composes with field recordings, digital presets, mixed voice and instrumentation, and both found and original video. Her recordings and performances focus on the contrast between facing finite resources of our physical landscapes and their infinite digital embodiments. Her solo and collaborative works have been presented at Zebulon, REDCAT, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, on the rooftop of The Standard Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, and on the façade of the Armory building in Long Beach, California, amongst others. Her debut, Dark Speech, was released with Dragon’s Eye Recordings in 2016. She is a member of VOLUME, a curatorial collective focused on sound-based practices.
