Elise Baldwin is an intermedia performer and sound artist. Her live cinematic works explore natural history, collective memory, and relationships between technology and the natural world. Using custom software instruments, physical props, and circuitry, she often combines and manipulates original and archival recordings and footage.
The Senses of Summer Music Series brings together artists and audiences for a series of outdoor concerts held in the Henry's loading dock. The featured artists — Tomo Nakayama, Golden Retriever, and Elise Baldwin from Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco respectively — are unified by their unique approach to sound, narrative, and atmosphere. The series is guest-organized by Eilish Cullen.
