Sharkiface | Danishta Rivero
Please join us for a concert of noise, electronics, processed voice, live sampling, loops, and rhythmic incantations as Sharkiface and Danishta Rivero present their live sets on the CCRMA Stage.
Sharkiface is a solo electronic musician and sound artist from Oakland, CA. She uses an interdisciplinary approach to create live textural incantations. Layering live samples, textures, and rhythms, her mostly improvised sets are made with an extremely tactile and rare synthesizer (the Ciat-Lonbarde Tranoe Ambrazier), sampler, and manipulated voice. Sharkiface also plays in the dark wave, synth duo Jeweled Snakes and performs with Aurora Josephine in the femme fatale electronic duo Tainted Pussy. Since 2000, Sharkiface — a long-time participant in the Bay Area noise scene — has been in projects such as Caroliner, Crack:WAR, Pigs in the Ground, and Tarantism. She also started and co-ran Life Changing Ministry, West Oakland's noise chapel.
Danishta Rivero is an improviser, performer, and sound artist based in Oakland, California. She is a vocalist whose solo performances involve the processing of her voice through electronics in order to explore the multi-dimensional presence of embodied, subjective, acoustic, and amplified sound in space. She also plays the Hydrophonium, a water-based electro-acoustic percussion instrument she created using hydrophones and jars filled with water. Rivero performs solo, often as Caribay, as well as with her electro-acoustic duo Voicehandler with percussionist Jacob Felix Heule. She is also half of Las Sucias, a feminist tropical noise duo with Alexandra Buschman-Román.
