Acclaimed lute player & soft-gaze Heaven Metal
Enter the dark, mythical world of minimalist composer and acclaimed lute-player Jozef van Wissem. Accompanied by his baroque instrument, Van Wissem creates highly distinctive sonic soundscapes by blending avant-garde and baroque music practices. With a trailblazing approach of the lute, Van Wissem pushes his instrument out of the academy and into more adventurous terrain
Based in San Miguel, New Mexico, multi-instrumentalist Midwife (Madeline Johnston) has spent the better half of the past decade developing her experimental pop project. As a self taught guitarist and recording engineer, Midwife explores dark subject matter in her anthemic, soft-gaze hits. Self-described as “Heaven Metal”, or emotive music about devastation and purification.
