Curated by Hazel Hill McCarthy III for Show Cave in Los Angeles, Sonic Horticulture is a site-specific event in conjunction with the month long installation project, Terrarium, at the Hotel Mariakapel in Hoorn that considers the concept of ritual music and its influence on the growth and communication of plants through sound and video.
Stellar Om Source
Stellar OM Source is known for beaming transmissions of hypnotic sound through her synths. While communicating abstract notions to enthralled audiences with her solo project Stellar OM Source, she has not only been dropping gems of her unique electronic sounds on to wax and disc but also to the masses in bold performance based shows, replete with lights and sequences. Otherworldly and entrancing, Stellar OM Source clearly displays a gift of transcendence. myspace.com/omsource.

hallucinatory synthtones wrapped in a dark beats and haunting black tarot-head visions perfect for a displaced and bleak landscape of broken technology. myspace.com/dickcavettsmodernwitch
Lola Loshkey is Drew Denny and Morgan Gee, channeling the spirits of their dead pets while performing noisey sound-scapes as peppy as they are peculiar. Employing a saw & viola, numerous effects, two skeleton costumes and human voice, Lola Loshkey explore an extraordinarily dynamic aural universe and corporeal glossolalia with an unabashedly minimal set up. myspace.com/lolaloshkey
Berlin based artist collective, dev01ded, will perform up/routed a performance based on "Plants' roots must be buried in order to live while humans are only buried when they are dead or meant to die. We bury our fears and traumas deep inside ourselves hoping they will slowly disintegrate, but we end up rotting out from the inside. Physically routed to their own system of interactive video, sound, and light, dev01ded, embodying their fears, will be slowly buried within an hourglass of dirt and technology, and he who buries them further entrenching himself in fear." dev01ded.com
