Lyra is a singer, composer-producer, and performance artist. She was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, studied classical music in upstate New York, and has called Berlin home for the last three years. In her solo work and collaborations, she embodies the search for sensual mysticism and transcendent emergence of the self within the emotional confines of global capitalism and our ever-more-heavily corporatized digital realms. In both her personal and artistic practices, Lyra commits to feeling, empathy, and listening as the central pathways to self-actualization as well as any affirmative, collective action.

Jessica Ekomane's practice unfolds around music and sound installations. She creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. This informs her musical compositions which seek a cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmical structures.
Why She? is a slow artist, based in Hokkaido. His art ranges from composing guitar melodies and electronic music, to painting and drawing. It is hard to fit him into one specific genre, but all of his work embodies the “slow life” philosophy that he lives by.
He spends his long Hokkaido winters alternating between the Sapporo metropolis, and hibernating in his cabin by Yoichi river, where he keeps a tomato farm in the warmer seasons.
His music reflects the contrast between these two locations — the bustling city streets that he skates through late at night, vs the tranquility of the nearly untouched nature which he inhabits. That is the essence of Why She? —
His music carries the footprints of the millions of people who saunter through the city, but also those of the bears who wander through the forest. It will send electricity through your veins, but it is a slow electricity. It is upbeat, but you will want to listen to it while taking a nap up in a tree. (by Anil Serpin)
