Visual / Deco: NephilNine – New York, NY

NephilNine is the brainchild of New York artist Sue Helfrich, creating event decorations and installation art since 2004. A classically-trained artist with a degree in Fashion Design from Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC, USA), Helfrich is deeply involved in each NephilNine installation:

“What drew me to decorating events was a passion for immersing someone in a fantastic environment. As a child, I dreamed of being able to explore the surreal worlds portrayed in fantasy/science fiction movies and TV shows. Now I enjoy being able to create worlds of my own design, even if only for a night, so that others may explore them.”

The NephilNine repertoire includes stretched spandex forms, a variety of geometric and organic 3-D UV sculptures, and large-scale string installations. These often psychedelic creations define events ranging from underground dance parties and major music festivals to private ceremonies and celebrations all over the world. NephilNine’s art is primarily made of layered cut fabric shapes. The fabric, which is often combined with other types sculpture, shapes space and light, surrounding performers and participants in beautiful environments.

Each space is different. No two installations are alike. Each is a study of Impermanence, Improvisation, and Growth. Lighting provided by other artists adds changing dimension. NephilNine takes the entirety of the space into consideration when designing, including the environmental impact of the materials used.

Ronin
12:00 am - 1:00 am
Eldritch Crew - Champaign, IL
DJ Set

Ronin is Mike Redding. Originally from a sleepy little town in central Illinois, Mike grew a love for music from an early age by burying his ears deep into the local punk rock and metal scenes and was, for a long time, actually distinctly not a fan of electronic music, as he preferred moshing and head banging to dancing. Then one fateful night he had his soul violently comendeered by by the overwhelming power of psytrance. Before he knew it found himself squarely in the middle of the dance floor completely unable to control the urge to let it all go and just get down. He knew then and there that he had found his home. Ever since he has made it his personal mission to absorb all psychedelic musical delicacies that his mind, body, and soul could withstand, and as DJ, seeks only to share to this experience with others. His music will put you heart in your throat, your head in the clouds, and hurl your consciousness to the cosmic winds.

His sets can be described as being a journey though rare corners of the mind.

New York, NY
Live Set

PROGRESS, the project of Yuriy Vaskevich, is an evolution of sound that brings a world of fantasy and imagination to its listeners. Based in New York City, an energetic hub, the music is a reflection of its physical origin as well as the mental evolution of its composer. With a strong foundation in classic music, mainly of piano and guitar and a post-modern ambition, the sound is both organic and electronic. The project began in the late 1990s with an exploration of personal identity and experimentation with various styles of electronic music. Today, PROGRESS, ranges in style from psychedelic trance, ambient and chill-out, to avant-garde and experimental. Having played at several live venues in the United States and written film scores, PROGRESS has a rapidly growing acclaim. As the name implies, the music is always progressing with the common denominator being its inspiring melodies and a strong tendency to take its listeners on a colorful journey.

Suit & Tie Guy
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
STG Soundlabs - Peoria, IL
Live Set

This mysterious character lives in Chillicothe, Ill. quietly plotting intricate and intense electronic music while blithely being behind the mask of the ubiquitous suit and tie. Along with his personal recorded output (Sacred Earth 2012 is the latest on 1320 Records), Suit & Tie Guy also records other bands (Black Magic Johnson for one) and claims the position of “head honcho and chief dishwasher” for STG Soundlabs, “the world’s only purveyor of exclusively Moog and Eurorack format analogue synthesizer modules.” Joining S&TG in this fascinating foray into contemporary electronica performed in a live setting are Cory Flanigan, a solo drummer/synthesizer player from Peoria and the Luzhin Defense, consisting of the Rogers brothers (Eric and Alexis) playing together to compliment Eric’s original songs. This should prove to be a unique and experimental night of music and a rapid and distinct departure from your normal guitar bands. Get out and get it. It’s good.

Blue Spectral Monkey
12:30 am - 4:00 am
(Chill Stage)
DJ Set

Truly a connoisseur of psychedelic electronic music and art, Blue Spectral Monkey has been evolving, collecting and spinning incessantly since 1995, taking him across 23 states and Canada.

BSM has played over 600 DJ sets spanning many genres and styles. From IDM to minimal techno, dub to funky chillout, glitch hop to drum and bass, psytrance to ambient, you never know what you might hear in the seemingly infinite depths of his collection!He is well known for his skills as a downtempo/chillout DJ, and joined the Interchill Records team in 2006. He dives deeply into the groove, all the time keeping the sounds thick, groovy and trippy. Hehas shared the stage with many internationally renown artists including: Androcell, Solar Fields, Gus Till, Bluetech, Kilowatts, Aligning Minds, Jaia, Govinda, Third Ear Audio, Liquid Stranger, Tripswitch, Piltdown Sound, Outersect, Kalya Scintilla, Hypnagog, Mustard Tiger and others!

Still fascinated by the mystery of psytrance, in its many forms, BSM explores this potent musical language with a sense of humor and curiosity. Focusing more on the techy chunky side of things after some years dabbling in deeper darker foresty sounds, you might also hear a rare set of suomi or daytime party grooves.

BSM has played alongside many well known psytrance artists, for example: Lemurians, Onkel Dunkel, Psychoz, Loud, Onnomon, Ocelot, Mubali, Bodhisattva 13:20, Primordial Ooze, Shapestatic, Secret Society, Naked Tourist, Terrafractyl, and many more!

Several years of music production has resulted in over 2 hours of original material, in a collaborative trance project known as Medimonkz, as well as newer material, spanning genres, made more recently alone. As one of the main organizers of TOUCH Samadhi he was responsible for the facilitation, decoration and promotion of countless dance events across the USA. In addition, he has organized the downtempo stage at the infamous Gemini Festival for two summers. The downtempo monthly at which he was a resident and organizer, Immersion, ran 10 months straight and is hibernating until a new, ideal location is discovered. Working with Metacrew in 2010, resulted in 4 outdoor events and a well received monthly, Psyche.

Ekimskrid
5:00 am - 6:30 am
Anomalistic Records - Cedar Rapids, IA
DJ Set

The man stared. Five crystal cubes were melting in a pool of fire as his eyes widened with joy. The flames towered over him in response to his sacrifice, pushing his tired body to the ground. He had been trapped in these woods for an eternity, scouring the dirt for five powerful artifacts in desperate attempts for knowledge. Ancient legends had led his soul on a path towards almost certain insanity, but finally his journey ended under the roars of an ancient portal covered in vines. The cubes disappeared into the earth and the flames vanished. Above, the moon shattered the darkness around him with a shining, welcoming light. From the glistening doorway, Ekimskrid emerged with a powerful grin.The thick forest around them glowed violently, laughing and chanting as the ritual commenced. The strange figure leaned towards the adventurer and chattered frequencies into the air, creating a brilliant symphony of pure, passionate sound. As the trees danced amongst the birth of new vibrations, the powerful being reached out his hand and said, “come, let me take you on a journey.You, reader, listener, and friend, are that traveler through Ekimskrids land. Here, you will discover the unknown, expanding your mind with incredibly engulfing sound worlds hand-crafted just for you. The opportunity that lies before you is the result of extreme dedication and hard work from a talented and unique individual. If you take the time to listen, you will gladly want to stay in this incredible, new reality. Close your eyes or get up and dance, a completely different experience awaits¦
