In a relentless, unreformable state of entropy, attention is as an alembic, distilling the player into a true physical sound emitted directly through abrasive and unflinching rigor. Gabie Strong’s trans-disciplinary approach is an everyday resistance, not easily recognized as a public or collective model—such as rebellions or demonstrations—but rising out of its burial, camouflaged and not politically articulated. With subtle pungency, the fine-grained eruptions of her guitar wade among moments of stark primitivism generating sonic matrices that reticulate the acoustic depths of nature, technology and culture, leaving behind the destabilizing limits of any scale or chromatics. The auras emitted from each string attack sustain and hover over the fluctuating decaying void. (Kio Griffith). Website: gabiestrong.com
