Profiles (Taken from Sonic Bloom website):
Michael Garfield: Now in his seventh year at Sonic Bloom, Michael’s live art is a field guide to the invisible, electrical winged spirits that crash into being through a dancing crowd. Executed freehand with paint markers and informed by his years as a scientific illustrator, each work emerges organically from the throb of house and audience to form closed-eye tessellations and luminous fossils, verdant and exultant imagery written in the natural language of dreams.
Apex Collective: Apex is a collective based around collaboration being a means of rapid evolution. Influenced by science and technology, we can find a great deal of themes relating to evolution and morphogenesis. Progressing the language of imagery through a telepathic creative connection is the major goal. While being sensitive to both classical and contemporary methods, the group strives to capture the underlying movements and patterns that surpass time.

Whether you want to relax and unwind or challenge your body to do new things, Sonic Bloom has set up yoga and movement arts at the festival for it all. These include such things such as flow art, parkour, and fire performance arts that are aimed to stimulate the body through unique movement.
Dylan Sanders: Using mindful movement and breath, we have the potential to constantly shift our footprint. Through the exploration of pieces of the whole, such as the development and use of core, shoulder and wrist strength, and the freedom from fear, our footprints don’t have to involve feet at all. With a playful attitude, willingness to fall, and possibility of flight, let’s look at yoga inversions in a new light.
Aside from the amazing musical performances, the festival will also provide enticing performance arts. Shows include incredible fire shows, hoop performances, dance groups, and more.
Lunar Fire: Let go of all familiarity and climb into a world of fantasy, alchemy, dreams and magic with mythmakers Lunar Fire. Formed in 2002 on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala when legendary band Kan’Nal’s dance troupe expanded theatrical storylines to include talented aerialists fire spinners and dancers. Inspired by personal voyages Lunar Fire pays homage through dance and music to our ancestors and future generations of urban and ethnic cultures universally to inspire a new paradigm. Dreaming the Future!
