Edenspore is a multifaceted business and solo project to hold the works of Robyn Mello: Earth Worship. Music. Permaculture Design. Classes and Workshops. Herbal Products. Visual Art. Deep Dreaming. The power of Mello's entrancing voice and vocal range draws people in, and her lyrical skills hold them for the duration of a performance. Her songs stir people with dreamy music and usher them through their days with calls to action to listen deeply to the earth and each other.
Laura Fisher is a classically trained and contemporary minded pianist, keyboardist, vocalist, composer, poet, and multi-media collaborator residing in New Orleans. Her current projects include Tranche (Bubble Bath Records), a dreamscape grunge band; Matron, an indie math rock band; Phantosmia, an ambient-electronic solo recording endeavour/live improv collective; and Dance Theatre Surreality (DTS), a nonprofit and feminist Parisian-American creative company for which she serves as resident composer. Fisher has also begun performing solo works for piano and voice again after a long hiatus – simply under her name – joined by an electronic dream pop backing band when in New Orleans.
GADADU plays adventurous, groove-based music with elements of soul, jazz and pop. The band's unusual instrumentation results in a wildly colorful improvisational framework swept together by lead singer Hannah Selin, whose haunting vocals are often doubled by viola or vocoder. GADADU released their debut album And I See Night in February 2015, followed by animated video-single "Bay Songs" in November 2016. Their second album is scheduled for release in late spring 2018.
Join us to celebrate the release of BAY SONGS, our new music video/single! This concert will benefit Launch Progress Political Action Committee, an organization committed to electing progressive and young political candidates from diverse backgrounds with a focus on local elections and grassroots organizing. Part of the 2017 Composers Now Festival.
This concert marks the culmination of a month-long collaboration between the Queens College New Music Group and GADADU, Ensemble-In-Residence at the Aaron Copland School of Music for the fall of 2016. GADADU will premiere new student works alongside two new GADADU originals.

The resonant, tonal palette of chimes, bells, and percussive ringing instruments effectively drum across the tight wire between post-punk textures, airport spaces, and the endless grass fields of the mind.
11:00 - Balún
Brought together by their love of experimental films, unusual musical instruments, electronic music, and a shared pop sensibility, Balún was formed in San Juan, Puerto Rico by José Olivares and Angélica Negrón. Currently Based in Brooklyn the dream-pop group now also includes Noraliz Ruíz and Raul Reymundi.
