Showroom Sessions May: SKYGAS, RocketMermaid

FREE | Saturday, 5/20 | Patchwerks Seattle Showroom | 3 - 5PM | All Ages

Join us Saturday, May 20th for another installment of our FREE monthly Showroom Sessions series! This month we're happy to host the musical talents of SKYGAS and RocketMermaid.

Showroom Sessions are a great chance to enjoy live music from our incredibly talented community and link up with friends old and new in a casual environment, connecting over a shared love of electronic music and all its devices.

3-4PM: 𝙎𝙆𝙔𝙂𝘼𝙎 is the new moniker of Seattle's Ian Price, known as the figure behind the unhinged Bonkers parties of the Northwest and the Pleasure Boat Records label, after years spent building gear and changing direction. Under this new pseudonym, the debut SkyGas album is the sound of a seasoned musician walking away from modern production and back into primordial sound. The result is a perpetual horizon machine focused on themes of joy, solitude, and impermanence, described as “new age with abrasions.”

4-5PM: Julia Davis (aka RocketMermaid) has been tinkering with musical oddities for 25 years, using everything from tracking programs from the demoscene to banging pipes against the walls of an Indiana basement. Since relocating to Seattle, she's fallen in love with modular synthesis and has incorporated it into her works, ranging from airy ambient to crushing industrial.
