STRATA is a Santa Fe-based trio of musicians. Formed in recent months and pandemic-influenced, they use sound, visual, and streaming software to perform live from three different sound studios. Accompanied by reclaimed, reformed, or re-appropriated video, their performance at 8pm, Monday, 08.24.2020 will run an hour or more as they explore fluid soundscapes containing elements of pure electronics, field recordings, voice, guitar, saxophone, percussion, and noise. Their performances are never the same, but always an uncommon sound experience.
