Yoneda Lemma Katrina Burch (b. 1987 in Scarborough Canada) is a visual artist, pianist, experimental producer, and electroacoustic composer. Her primary artistic moniker, Yoneda Lemma (since 2013), is an artistic platform inspired by the erotics of abstraction, from surrealist visual arts to contmporary mathematics, and through the poetics of reciprocity in nature.

Her music is kaleidoscopic; she glues discreet elements from multivariate sources, including sounds from unique field recordings, composed instrumentals, synthetics improvisations, and algorithmic explorations. Between 2016-2018, Katrina studied for a Master’s in Music at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague (NL) Royal Conservatoire.

For a long period Katrina worked in the Andes as an archaeologist; for a short period she lived in Thailand where she left her heart in the care of an enlightened person. She has an undergraduate degree in Buddhist studies and Indigenous studies, and two graduate degrees in Anthropology and Archaeological Sciences. Katrina aspires to bridge these latter worlds to sounds through her critical writings and poetry, and eventually through subversive 360 audio-visual (sensorial) ethnographies.

Yoneda lemma is the primary artistic moniker of Katrina Burch, a visual artist, pianist, experimental producer, and electroacoustic composer, who will be introducing her newest performance piece, Tangled strands of Silhouettes, lighting in carnival.

Forest Management is the solo guise of John Daniel (b. 1989), an American musician and composer living in Chicago, Illinois. Active since 2011, Forest Management has released four full-length LPs and a number of cassette and CDrs on various underground labels (including Perfect Wave, Constellation Tatsu, and No Rent), as well as collaborations with modern ambient artists Celer and David Tagg. Initially a touring drummer for various bands in his hometown of Cleveland, Daniel re-located to the Windy City in 2016 and began focusing on Forest Management as a platform for more intimate, late-night experiments with reel-to-reel tape and computer software. His latest full-length 'After Dark' (American Dreams Records) is a 2LP of software reconstructions, based on turntable audio of Claude Debussy's La Mer.
