Presented by Nonsequitur.
Electro-Gals is an organization dedicated to promoting and inspiring electronic music and digital art by women. For this show, collective members Christi Denton (Portland), Briana Marela (Olympia), and Heather Perkins (Portland) will employ a wide variety of instruments and techniques, including hand-built electronic instruments, cassette-deck-loopers, vocoders, electric guitar, hand-coded music software, and gesture-operated synthesizers, to create rich sonic environments.

Briana Marela is vocalist and song conjurer composing with processed vocals and audio samples through Max/MSP. Her first full length album is due out this April on Olympia label Bicycle Records.
Heather Perkins is composer, sound designer and Mad Scientist at WaterDog Studio in Portland, where she creates music and sound for dance, animation, computer games, film, theater, installation, and live performance.
