ISOLDE TOUCH is the project of Asha Sheshadri, a multimedia artist working out of Philadelphia. Her live performance hinges on experimentation and abstraction through speech synthesis, original texts, computer, and piano, and her latest recording "Secretary of Sensation" was released on Entr'acte Recordings. Asha was a recent fellow at the American Academy in Rome and is a current MFA candidate at the School of Design at the University of Pennsylvania.

Standing Waves is a monthly music, sound, and artists talk series with a concentration on one artist in the performance of and presentation about their work. Standing Waves is given over to a single artist for each event that allows for the performance and auditioning of their work as well as a presentation to the audience about it that makes for an intimate as well as rigorous experience, with the integrity and intention of the artist and work aligned and revealed. A distinguishing element of the series will also be a document in the form of a book that includes critical writings and photographs from the events. This comprehensive approach will elucidate the music, sound art and practices that overlap and comprise the artists’ works.

Standing Waves is a program originally conceived by Morgan Evans-Weiler and Mobius Artist Jed Speare in conjunction with Mobius.
