Christi Denton is a composer and sound installation artist who works with found sounds, electronics, and homemade and modified instruments. She enjoys breaking things, multi-channel speaker configurations, and building instruments where other things control sound; for example, where the audience can influence the composition with their phones or their drinks, or where light, weather, or a microorganism modifies musical parameters.
Francisco Botello is an intermedia artist born and raised in Chula Vista, California. Growing up a dual citizen on the dividing line between the United States and Mexico, his work reflects on the nature of place and belonging. Gathering and composing with field recordings, alongside electronics he explores questions of identity, ancestry, geography, change, and loss. Recently, he has been experimenting with gestural control and working with immersive, multi-channel sound systems as ways to connect his art more intimately with his body and audience.
Francisco Botello is presently based in Portland, OR, USA.
