THIS WEEKEND!!
March 14 at the Subterranean Art House 



I'm very excited to announce that we are curating a new music and art series at 
the Subterranean Art House starting this month. Submerged Art and Music Series will begin
with a very special show featuring GeaSong the music of Rebecca Cross tuned to rhythms of the earth. 
Since her music is so intricately tied to bio-rhythms and water, we thought that we would collaborate
on that theme for the night and create some interactive sound art installations for guests to experience
along side the music of the night. 
The guest artists for next month's show will be released on the premiere night of the series, this Friday at the Subterranean Art House, 7:30 PM

Trembling Water is a collection of songs infused with the intention to enchant the water molecules of your being into harmonious alignment. The theme of the album also plays on various the water analogies, alluding to the creative process (from the subconscious abyss!), seeking models in nature, and acknowledging its as the source of life and formless flow that circulates between us. 

Heather's band this evening will include Paul "Fresh" Martin (Antioquia, Candelaria, Fresh Juice), Craig Miller (Antioquia, Fresh Juice), Nathaniel Markman (Edward Sharp and Magnetic Zeros), Marlon Aldena (Ginger Ninjas) and other special guests.
