About the Artists:
Gamelan Bike Bike draws its musical inspiration from Bali, Indonesia and its raw materials from the scrap metal bins of Vancouver. In 2012, instrument maker George Rahi collected over 100 discarded bicycle frames to build the instruments. The colorful metal scraps, configured into a series of metallophones instruments, created a platform for experimental gamelan music on the West Coast. The ensemble has presented performances with the Western Front, Vancouver New Music, and the Vancouver Folk Music Festival and in 2017 released Hi-Ten, a collection of original works with the Indonesia-based art collective and label Insitu Recordings.
ings is a guitarist and songwriter from Seattle who plays lullaby rock. In addition to her performance project she directs music videos and is a community organizer of DIY shows in Seattle. She has, as a completely DIY artist, earned over a million streams on Spotify. Her debut album, Lullaby Rock, was released in November 2019, a month later she released her Audiotree Live Session, which was subsequently included in the Official Audiotree Staff Favorite Playlist. In Spring 2020, she will be touring the American Southwest on her way to perform at SXSW.
