From Wikipedia: "Susan and the Surftones is an American surf instrumental band. The band is considered part of the 'third wave' of surf-revivalist bands that formed the 1990s. The band was started in 1993 in Rochester, NY by lead guitarist Susan L. Yasinski, one of very few female lead guitarists in instrumental surf music. Influenced also by early Beatles, ‘’60’s garage and 70’s punk music, their sound incorporates traditional surf with elements associated with these other genres, such as the use of the combo-organ. Susan relocated to the west coast in 2000, and reformed the band in Portland, Oregon." She has now moved to Hudson, NY.

8 p.m. – May 20, 2013: 3 a.m.: Interior Vibrations
Performances by Anna Friz, Kristen Roos live from Toronto's Trans-X Transmission Art Symposium. Tune in live webcast here. Friz and Roos perform using acoustic field recordings from the Toronto area and electro-magnetic instruments, revealing the otherwise invisible interpenetration of objects and frequencies moving in urban space. Other works by Sarah-Leith Izzard, Karin Senff and Steve McCourt explore interior and/or inherent electromagnetic phenomena and mechanized environments.
• "Short Horizon" by Anna Friz and Kristen Roos. Performance featuring acoustic field recordings from the Toronto area and electro-magnetic instruments. Short Horizon considers the otherwise invisible interpenetration of objects and frequencies moving in urban space.
• "Her Deepness" by Sarah-Leith Izzard. Inspired by oceanographer Sylvia Earle’s record breaking deep-sea dive in 1979, manipulated acousmatic sounds create a ‘cinema of the mind’ without traditional verbal cues. From the surface the listener descends alone into darkness, bioluminescent creatures appear and a psychological transformation occurs as ‘she’ goes deeper.
• "XRF" by Karin Senff. XRF is an electro-acoustic composition that uses recordings of an X-ray spectrometer to create a conceptual model of the sub-atomic interactions that take place during sample analysis, where the action of an electron splitting from its atom is read as a vital fracture of the most fundamental bonds of life.
• "ac-4" by Steve McCourt. ac-4 features sounds that suggest vibration, fragmentation and static interference. The piece also forms a machine/human narrative and draws influence from cinematic montage, as new images are suggested through the juxtaposition of sounds in space and time.
