Camp Saint Helene
Dylan Nowik, of Steady Sun, and vocalist Liza Ibarra began Camp Saint Helene shortly after moving to the Catskill Mountains. Their studio, where they did most of their writing, is located on the site of a former Christian summer camp-turned-arts-colony, which has informed much of their artistic process. Their sound lies somewhere within a shimmer of hope and a hint of doom.
Nowik and Ibarra teamed up with Alex P. Wernquest (drums) and Wesley Harper (bass and keys), to record their first album to 8-track, ½” tape, at Basement Floods Records in Catskill, New York. Their debut record, Mother, was released on September 27th, 2019.
WSABI is Warped Sangot And Boss Interior — performance art-prog spanning guitar loop-based rhythm fixation music, movement, video, craft, & plant play by decolonizing Filipinx Brooklyn-based artist, Jennae Santos. Sangot is Visayan for sickle — a farming tool and combat weapon representing WSABI practice in the Harvest of love, community, and pleasure, and the Fight for collective liberation in sensorial freedom.
Camp Saint Helene vocalist Elizabeth Celeste Ibarra will have a photographic exhibition on display. More details TBA.
