|||Birds of Paradise|||
Birds of Paradise is California-based producers Torin Goodnight (Bird of Prey) and Tyler Gibson (Gibson). Each has a decade of experience behind him, and has been steadily making waves in the electronic music scene. Having a similar aesthetic but still maintaining an individual approach, they combine forces in a new symbiotic project to work towards a common vision and master the art of collaboration. The duo plays to its strengths- patience, beauty, and depth to offer a truly original sound of rolling percussive breakbeats, progressive melodies, incredible sound design and twisted psychedelic layers. Their fusion of elements, both natural and synthetic, create an engaging bio-digital landscape that leaves little to the imagination. It will take your ears only a moment to realize that you have uncovered something special.
Ambient Lucid Dreaming Music

By seamlessly combining the ethereal elements of sultry blues, conscious hip-hop, groovy funk and grimey EDM, Device Grips conjures up an alchemical energy that destroys dance floors everywhere.
Subaqueous music is a sound-submersion that paints complex crystalline caverns in the mind. The music dances between dreams and the depths of the soul.
|||MUSE Revival Family Band – Masters of Freedom & Let Me Rise|||
The MUSE Revival Family Band is a collective of songwriters and performers who fuse music, dance, and spoken word in a theatrical melting pot where the sublime and the ridiculous make sweet love to the Mysteries.

A sunrise in a lucid dream in the desert welcomed in a new personal dawn of peace, strength, and hope - to be represented by visual art, dance, and music by Niira Daniella

This presentation on theory and practice of Process Work Dreaming Awareness, developed by Arnold Mindell and others from Jungian, Taoist and Shamanic roots, will include visual representations of dream theory, demonstrate practical work in our relationship, as well as give the audience a brief opportunity to explore inner work.
Dreaming is a fluid and creative way of being in the world. Everything is dreaming all the time. When we follow dreaming signals with our awareness, we can find deep individual fulfillment, more intimacy in relationships, and greater sense of belonging in our communities.
