About the Artists:

Dorothy Carlos


Dorothy Carlos is an experimental cellist and electronic musician working in improvised performance and multi-channel sound in New York City and Chicago. Her work utilizes randomized electronics and extended techniques to explore fragility and imaginaries. Recent solo performances have been presented internationally by e-flux, Experimental Sound Studio Chicago, Big Ears Festival, default, Center for New Music and Associated Technologies (CNMAT) at UC Berkeley, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Dorothy has been featured as an artist and collaborator in projects presented at the Swiss Institute (New York), Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Artists Space (New York), Performance Space (New York), Untitled Art Fair (Miami), Gaudeamus Festival (Utrecht, NL) and the Fall River Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work has been featured in Artforum, The Wire, The Quietus, and the Chicago Reader. Dorothy holds a Bachelor’s degree from NYU where she studied classical cello and anthropology on full scholarship, and an MFA in sound from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is the current Alba Artist in Residence at Experimental Sound Studio Chicago.





Gs70 is a solo project of Anastasia Gladkova, a musician and sound artist based in Chicago, IL. Born and raised in Russia, Anastasia combines delicate vocals and warm ambient textures with industrial noises and layers of heavy guitar to speak to human vulnerability and trauma. Permeated with sentimentality and nostalgia, gs70’s music explores grief and longing for a sense of home that might have been lost. Inspired by orthodox chants and Eastern-European folk, she cherishes her culture’s century old traditions, balancing it with a fascination for the underground scene of Soviet post-punk, shoegaze, and industrial music as a form of rebellion. Blending these influences together, gs70 creates cathartic narratives that express the emotional complexity of searching for an identity in a life complicated by an autocratic regime and separation from loved ones.





Bakantez is the newly formed solo experimental electronic project of Hanna Elliott, a longtime member of the post-industrial duo HOGG. After a decade of performing and releasing five albums between 2015-2021 with collaborations HOGG & Abstructum, Hanna returned with her debut solo release ‘Rubedo’ in October 2023. Bakantez incorporates slow meditative rhythms with atmospheric textures, simple hymn-like melodies, and mangled processed vocals to paint a fraught libidinal soundscape of esoteric introspection. Her live performances exhibit a distinct cultivated physicality involving repetitive movement, dynamic vocalizations, and amplified props. Her songs dive through a range of emotive states, as if one were watching a play displayed in separate acts. The music draws influence from genres ranging from black metal, musique-concrete, spiritual music, noise, and minimal wave.
