  • BUK THE SYSTEM

    Preorder here BUK THE SYSTEM is a compilation of experimental electronic music made in Pittsburgh, PA benefiting the Bukit Bail Fund. Comprising 19 original tracks, the compilation is both a collective call from the participating artists to abolish policing and prisons, and a fundraising effort to aid Bukit Bail Fund’s ongoing work to support those incarcerated at Allegheny County Jail. The Bukit Bail Fund of Pittsburgh was founded in honor of Frank “Bukit” Smart Jr., beloved brother, father of seven, and grandfather, who was needlessly killed at Allegheny County Jail when guards denied him medication and forcibly restrained him while he experienced a seizure. He was detained pre-trial, and had not been convicted of any crime. We stand with the Bukit Bail Fund’s demand to end cash bail, pre-trial detention, and the entire prison-industrial complex. All proceeds from the purchase of BUK THE SYSTEM will go to the Bukit Bail Fund of Pittsburgh. www.bukitbailfund.org Mastering by Ali Berger Album artwork by Khadijat Yussuff Organized by Jessica Fuquay and Samir Gangwani

  • L I L I T H

    Speculative multimedia virtualist L I L I T H is a multidisciplinary artist who works at the intersection of digital art, emerging tech, sound, and performance art. L I L I T H  explores autonomy, femininity, and queerness in virtual and physical spaces through audiovisual narratives and performance of a preconceived future. In their new album, Ambient Live L I L I T H performs live ambient sets while you become indoctrinated into virtual corporeality. Instruments frequently used: human body, computers, tears, electric violin, voice, FM synthesis, electric guitar. L I L I T H creates disjointed narratives about preconceived futures of bodily autonomy and agency pulling from ideals of object oriented ontology and power dynamics in performance. VOID (Giving Birth to Myself), 2018 In their recent dual show, Possible Bodies, 2019 L I L I T H experiments with the Kinect controller and creates a motion capture system that allows the audience to interact and control their avatar with bodily movements. Aether.01 - Possible Bodies, 2019 L I L I T H is also the creator of Aether Institute, a platform that explores new frontiers of virtual embodiment while reflecting on one's own corporeality. The process of creating an Avatar is one of birth, modification, revision, and reflection. As the Avatar is made, the creator reflects on their own physicality. Witness the Avatar as she gazes at you gazing back at her, as if she somehow realizes the limitations of her domain, and us of ours. Reaching into the Aether provides physical reassurance and permanence, and reflects the limitations of our domain. Simultaneously, the action is a vain one; while the limitations of physicality are transcended here, there is no guarantee of permanence and security in Virtual Form. - Aether, 2020 L I L I T H aims to create a virtual future where the governing constraints of body politics are regarded in a new age of object recognition. Drawing from queer phenomenology and a speculative future viewing us as the AI body, a re-construction of synthetic neural networks of object recognition and the body as an object too; we recognize our un-real existence, our non-existent bodies.
