CHER VON, aka Chervon Koeune, is an experimental vocalist, performer, and composer residing in Louisville, Kentucky. CHER VON is known for her unique vocal style, which blends a playful use of wordless vocalizing with a sometimes-throaty, sometimes-graceful delivery of ethereal melodies. Working primarily with a vocal processor, a large bass drum, and miscellaneous found-sound objects, her exploration has shifted to minimalist music concepts.

Dash Lewis uses a modular synthesizer, effects pedals, and his own voice to create intricately layered, rhythmically complex slabs of trance-inducing psychedelia deeply influenced by Harmonia, Lichens, and Ariel Kalma. A GARDENER set ranges from 25-30 minutes and consists of a single composition encouraging deep listening.

DIVINE CIRCLES is the solo venture of violinist and composer Meg Mulhearn, also a member of the groups U.S. Christmas, Judas Horse and Lunar Creature.

SHUTARO NOGUCHI is from Japan and in 2010 he moved to Louisville, Kentucky after finishing his college degree and internship at FAME studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He quickly found musical outlets as a collaborator with K Tranza and Another 7 Astronauts. From 2013 he started recording his own songs, and has released several recordings. His style of music varies but generally is melody-oriented, minimal acoustic guitar singer-songwriting sung in Japanese with a flavor of traditional-folk, backed by ensembles of synth and electric guitar. He is influenced by music from America and around the world, and Pajo.

BATTLE TRANCE exists in the cracks between contemporary classical music, avant-garde jazz, black metal, ambient, and world music, and their 2014 album Palace of Wind (on NNA Tapes) is a composition that pushes the four saxophonists to the limit, shedding new light on the saxophone as an ensemble instrument.  The players use circular breathing to build continuous, hypnotic waves of sound; multiphonics layer to create intricate textures that reflect an ancient time; and blisteringly fast lines seem to liquefy into each other.

D Arkestra still frame

D’ARKESTRA is a nonet that plays an amalgamation of post-rock and indie-jazz. The music  is often cinematic, characterized by odd metered grooves, juxtaposed sections, tight horn lines, improvisation and resonant melodies. Leader, songwriter and saxophonist Drew Miller has a growing resume that includes performances and/or recordings with Spoon, Wanda Jackson, Lucky Pineapple, Another 7 Astronauts, Scott Carney/Wax Fang, Cheyenne Mize, 23 String Band, The Ladybirds, Junk Yard Dogs and appearances with a slew of other Louisville and regional artists. The group formed in early 2012 and was initially an instrumental ensemble. When recording their first record Ghost Town in June, 2012, they solicited the help of songstress Dane Waters to contribute vocals on a few songs. The vocals added such a balance to the sound they sought out someone who could join on a permanent basis. After another year of writing, recording and playing shows Drew and D’ARKESTRA have produced another adventurous and honest record called Little Voices. This show will be the official party for Little Voices‘ release!
