The recording from the Bromo Seltzer Tower performance is set for release in January 2015, as one side of cassette/digital recording called Seltzer (Thrill Jockey Records).

Zoe Friedman's work deals with manifestations of the human need to filter impersonal realities by exploring allegory, iconography, and ornamentation through large scale installation and stop motion animation.

Peals is a music project crafting meditative and exploratory headphone panoramas, incorporating elements of ambient, folk, krautrock, punk, and experimental music. They have performed in BMA's Spring House. Peals released their debut album Walking Field in 2013 on Thrill Jockey Records.

After Hours, Sky Lines: Jana Hunter & Peals

On July 10, 2013 Jana Hunter and Peals performed at the Playwright Celtic Pub in Times Square. Jana Hunter performed work from across her solo spectrum of ambient murmurs and sound textures to dreamlike pop sighs, evoking a serene, summertime ode to the Times Square skyline and warm nights. Peals, a Baltimore-based band, rounded out the evening's performance with their meditative and intimate sounds. Jana Hunter is a writer, musician and leader of several bands, most recently Lower Dens. She was born in Pantego, Texas. Her music is characterized by meticulous attention to craft, stemming from her conviction that work can solve any problem, especially those inherent to being alive. Her first car was a Mercedes diesel wagon that ran on fast food fryer oil stolen under cover of darkness.
