Bloom Festival at TLC Farm May 20

 

Tryon Life Community Farm is hosting its annual spring festival, Bloom! Join us in bringing this land to life with live musical performances, skillshares, storytelling, and other activities for kids and adults!
***BLOOM: THE SOCIAL JUSTICE EDITION***
We’ll also be sharing something that’s been blooming strongly here: white folks and people of color working together to decolonize ourselves and our relationships to the land–and to each other. We’re excited to support a POC-only space at this event for the first time, and to invite other white Bloomers to engage in thoughtful conversations and share skills for decentering whiteness. Specific people will be available to mediate hard or awkward moments that may arise for anyone, as we work to support a more just and sustainable future BLOOMing for us all.

***ACTIVITIES***

Live Music & Dance:
2 pm: Aztec Dancers
2:30: CypherCure: earth-inspired hip hop
3:45: Medicine Web, etheric soulfilled harmony
5:00: C Wood, Independent music with folk roots
6:30: SaraTone, New Roots Music

What’s a Silent Dance party? A new way to turn up the volume and raise the roof without disturbing the blissful peace of the forest at sundown. DJ sets will be broadcast over radio, so dancers can rock-out on headphones with DJ Grei.

We’ll also have a bonfire and welcome folks to play acoustic music together around the fire.

Food & Drink available by donation, and we invite dishes and snacks to share.

Much like the way I feel about my production and creation of music, and my lifelong obsession with it, I like to create a hypnotic undercurrent, something primal and seductive, that occasionally surfaces like a leviathan from the deep,
leaving you mad with desire to see it again… I like electrowhateveronica featuring new and used vibrations.”

BNTY HNTR (Fractured, CybeReacion, Twilight) SEA

“BNTY HNTR (Chuck Larson) has been involved with the electronic music scene as a DJ/Producer since the early 90’s. His music and style has been performed up and down the West Coast, Burning Man, Idaho and as far east as Arkansas. International shows include several trips to Mexico and Canada. Bounty Hunter is a founding member of the Seattle based group CybeReation and also Digital Godfathers and Locos Only of Eastern Washington. Now on future endeavors, Chuck is looking to bring on a return to the source adventure with a newly found Northwest project “Twilight”.”

S-Range (Spiral Trax, Iboga Records) SWEDEN
S-Range is Anthony Sillfors, a Progressive and Psychedelic trance producer from Sweden.
 
Hailed as one of the most innovate artists in the Trance scene, Anthony, aka S-Range never holds back from experimenting, and he’s always conjuring up exotic soundscapes. From across Australia, Brazil, Israel, India, Japan, Mexico, USA, to all over Europe, the trancers have swayed to the beats of his Live & DJ sets.

Capt Tripps (Seattle Psy Ops) USA
“My name is Capt Tripps ( joe ), and I’ve been DJing since 1989. Initially when I started I was a New Wave Dj. Yeah I’m old. As i progressed I found techno and hard trance, (deep, minimal, and psycho). I still love it and just recently started playing some of the new stuff again. Then came Psytrance. I started playing psychedelic trance over 16 years ago and haven’t stopped. To me, there is nothing like it. I’ve played all over the United States from Norfolk Virginia to Seattle Washington.”
 
A night of great music soon to commence.

DEC 10 Typonexus: Golden Record II – Heliopause

Hello all! Spoondrift Radio is Going MOBILE for a special broadcast! We are in full support. However, we still recommend being there in person! There is much to see here that you won’t believe unless you were there. <3

 

Golden Record II: Heliopause

  • Saturday, December 10 at 8 PM – 2 AM in Seattle
  • Historic Landmark Site (Classified Outpost), SEA
  • Tickets available at golden-record-ii.bpt.me

“This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilisations. This record represents our hope and our determination, and our good will in a vast and awesome universe.” ~ Golden Record greeting

GOLDEN RECORD II: Once again, it’s that point in spacetime forTYPONEXUS to lead a cadre of cosmonauts on a vivid, immersive, cutting-edge, multi-sensory odyssey with a mission to deliver our annual Golden Record update across frontiers of outer space. Spikes in audiovisual intake registered by the Cosmic Organ Control Panel indicate that Voyager 1 advanced beyond the heliopause. Don your spacesuits, converge at the Deep Space Network Station (disguised on your map as a century-old, historic landmark site), and join the transmission. Tracing the trajectory of the farthest-reaching spacecraft, we escape the electromagnetic embrace of our solar system and delve into mysteries of the interstellar medium, while reflecting on that pale blue dot we call home – and our place within it.

Golden Record is a holistic script of ourselves, humans – a collage of unique, individual manifestations of the whole – traversing the Universe as we search beyond – within and without. It’s a foray into the world of human expression – an intimate, ephemeral, multifaceted sample of our civilization. It’s a message in a bottle carrying our identity: culture, imagination, accomplishments and aspirations.

This evening is a collective writing of our own.
