Performer bios:

Jason E Anderson is an electronic musician/sound artist living in rural Eastern WA. Since 2014, he has created/performed music under his own name and in performance art/film hybrid LIMITS with dancer Corrie Befort. Anderson generates musical spaces through live sound synthesis with analog circuits and analog/digital control systems. He is currently building a Serge synthesizer, improvising in a cattle shed, creating music for dance and film, and finding his way back to live performance. Anderson was actively involved in Seattle’s experimental music and performing arts communities until relocating in 2018. Notable projects from that time include his label Gift Tapes/DRAFT and many music projects: BNSF, Brother Raven, Spare Death Icon and MESH.

Kahyun Uhm is currently pursuing an MFA in the art department at Washington State University. She was born in S. Korea and immigrated to the U.S. when she was in her late 20s. As an undergraduate, her work emphasized audio recording, electronic music, and soundscape creation, along with a return to her childhood practice of classical piano. More recently, she is interested in exploring Asian immigrant experiences living in the U.S. through the use of analog and digital media, sound, and interactive technology.
