Suzanne (Cub) Rogaleski grew tired of choreographing her trapeze act to popular music and canned sounds. Ryan (Lone Wolf) Sawyer was looking to showcase a more avant-garde side of his drumming. Born out of need for each to perform original material while challenging their own artistry, Lone Wolf and Cub is a collaboration that defies category. And while they might seem like two disparate acts, the two of them are able to communicate with each other through a common language of painting. Their canvases act as visual road maps while they perform so that they are fully able to understand where each other is heading. Performing in unison, they invite their audience to share their childlike wonder and inspiration.

Most people know Kid Koala as a world famous DJ and turntablist. But the soundscapes he composes are only one element of his expansive creative universe. His newest project, Space Cadet, is a sketch-board graphic novel about an astronaut girl, her guardian robot, and their adventures through space. Partly inspired by the recent birth of his daughter, Space Cadet is accompanied by a hypnotic soundtrack, recorded late at night so he wouldn’t wake her. Kid Koala explores a wide variety of instruments and visual tools to craft this wintertime lullaby and storybook.

Today’s world of DIY music production has allowed for nearly anyone with a song to find an audience. But without strong production and promotion it is even more difficult for today’s hardworking bands to stand out against the cacophony of other artists trying to do the same thing. With Weathervane, Philadelphia producer Brian McTear seeks out fresh talent and invites these up and coming artists into his studio for a two-day session. The resulting recordings are mixed and released on the project’s website for anyone to download. Weathervane not only gives the artists greater recognition, but also helps them explore the limits of their sound.
