Performance info: 

Tara Rodgers (Analog Tara) will perform a set of ambient electronic atmospheres and techno/electro beats. Sounds are sourced from multiple analog synths and drum machines; tracks are produced and performed with Ableton Live. The compositions explore some fundamental material and metaphoric aspects of electronic sound: lightness and weight, surface and depth, densities and space. The music is motivated by a question: What are the capacities of electronic sound as a force for feeling and a source of healing?
