Symbiosis Gathering

Listen Along

 

Symbiosis Gathering is a festival that never sleeps. And for us, the place we needed to be. Advertised as the closest representation of “the Burn”, Symbiosis provides an environment that blends inescapable earthly elements with counter-culture creativity focused on, well, symbiosis. Trade Burning Man’s whiteouts and dust storms for cool water and a nice breeze and it’s Symbiosis setting the bar even higher. Add to that some of the most impressive and interactive stage designs, art, and media (you can climb almost everything) around and you’ve barely broached the surface.

 

Despite all the bells and whistles, the people are the true attraction. Sexually comfortable and vibrantly free – both spiritually and physically – every attendee offers their deepest of generosities coupled with their quirkiest of virtues at a moment’s notice. It’s hard not to appreciate everyone’s presence whether you’re participating in the goofiness or just watching from afar. As one of the mainstay “transformational” festivals, Symbiosis does a great job at providing a welcoming community for everyone’s spiritual and worldly enrichment. And to top it all off, everyone knows how to party.

Portland based producer EPROM excels in all things underground bass. Where he stands out is in a wide-ranging background in drum and bass, dubstep, beats and trap. Having last seen him live at HARD Summer 2014, we can only expect he’ll put on a show that’s just as wild both visually and sonically. Check him out Thursday at 10:45pm at The Grotto if you’re trying to start your fest off with some really bizarre and forward thinking sensations.

The two sisters that make up CocoRosie blend dreamy blues indie-pop vocals with experimental beats and electronica. While the combination of genres is rather peculiar, these sisters create a sense of alluring curiosity with that oddity. The addition of their interactive and artistic stage presence only makes the performance that much more worthy to see live.

 

Their upcoming album, Heartache City, and its first live performance headlines Symbiosis’ Sunday at Big Island. Bianca “Coco” will also be debuting her side project Bianca Casady & The C.I.A. in the US over the weekend. With both acts, you can be sure that the performance will be a theatrics-laden event. We’ll see you there.

Well known among Black Rock circles, Goldcap is a master at leading listeners on journeys through deep-desert tech and playa-house. Having caught him multiple times (this year’s LIB experience was a major highlight), it’s a given that we give him credit for the way he spins a story.

 

Symbiosis will be the perfect setting for his off-center Armenian-influenced desert sound; here’s to hoping Sabo makes a guest B2B appearance as he has been recently.

Together, Steve Nalepa, Adam Freeland, and RY X are The Acid. They produce ambient and sulky electronica with wistful vocalizations. The result is music that gets deep into the brain in the best way possible. As a four-piece live experience, their sounds fly between soft and wispy to loud and gritty; like a cross between a dim warehouse rave and a moody indie show.

 

The Acid – Basic Instinct

The Acid – Tumbling Lights

The Acid – Ra

Much like Lightning in a Bottle, Symbiosis Gathering has been touted amongst our friends who’ve attended as the place to be for loving expressions akin to true family. Until this year, we never really had the time or felt like we’d find the most meaning from it. Yet, much like gatherings of this type, the meaning tends to finds you.
