1) Free folk/drone project Elm, the solo guise of Jon Porras, best known for his adventures as half of the magnificent Barn Owl (without Evan Caminiti). In Jon's own words: "Elm is simply a way for me to release the material that I record at home, usually alone and in a dense blanket of fog. For now I'm working with hazy, dreamlike atmospheres, I try to evoke an entire experience with elm, a headspace to lull in, to drift off into.
I was also really inspired by the one-man black metal band thing, completely aside from the actual music, the ability for one person to create the experience of an entire band or orchestra was really appealing to me. I want to exploit the capabilities of home recording and home production to evoke a place of mystery, a mark of the unknown."
2) Elodie Ozanne, New York City (voice, cello, organs &more)
Manuel Bienvenu, Paris (piano, organs, guitars &more)
