Nueva Forma Showcase

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

For the past five year's the Portland-based Nueva Forma label has been mining the depths of experimental electronic dance music in the Northwest. With an emphasis on highly technical beat production, serene melodies and interactive visual art, Nueva Forma offer a wide spectrum of thought-provocative dance music that works just as well in the bedroom as it does in the club. For this showcase, Nueva Forma has curated four collaborative A/V sets sure to entertain both aurally and visually.

For fans of Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada and Autechre

Branden Clarke, otherwise known as IG88, would maybe like to fool you into believing that he and his buttons are buried somewhere in between a spray of ambient elation and the sands of a remote desert planet – but there’s something else here. Something tangible and soulful, something raw and quick. Something like the full breath of a thunderhead, the shards of sparks following a blunt and sonic hit to the nail on the... Read More →

The Bear and The Sea

Nueva Forma
Damon Sheeley, otherwise known as The Bear & The Sea, may be a nature boy, born of the Pacific Northwest – bred on the hazy gray waters of both the sea and the air and inspired thusly – but he was also raised on jazz, 80s synth-pop, Mama’s classical music, MTV, and poverty.

Lush pastures of tone and colour, nuance and subtlety, structural minimalism. Eager to translate the soundscapes in his head into audible format, Tim Westcott of wndfrm (formerly known as Cloudburst) has spent the last decade or so learning how this can be done via electronic composition, found sounds, and a thirst for tonal re-interpretation and DSP-lensed interaction with the here and now.
