SAUCE: Sessions at National Sawdust
DJ Eric Umble and DJ Despina
5pm - 9pm
Eric Umble is a Brooklyn-based sound artist and DJ. An acclaimed professional classical musician, Eric‘s love of primal repetition and extended forms made his jump to DJing a natural step. Since his debut as a DJ, Eric has performed across the United States, including at Detroit’s Deluxx Fluxx and as a resident DJ at H0L0 (NYC). For more information visit ericumble.com.
Michael Matchen aka Despina (they/them) is a DJ, composer, and sound artist. Their work interweaves sonic fragments of the Internet with abstract textures and dance rhythms, crafting infectious and provocative aural digitalia. Through their multisensory party series Foreverware, Michael imagines an ecofeminist, anti-capitalist, post-humanist future where technology is used to overcome the limitations of the unequal dystopian society we live in. Michael has one foot in a science fiction utopia, one foot in a quantum computer, and one foot in a hellish unending rave, like some tripodic, omnigendered chimera.
