Waves Presents: New Era
In the dead of night, bright neon lights pierced through the air, illuminating the toxic dust particles floating amongst the city skyscrapers. Since the war, the once bustling metropolis is an eerie and quiet place, especially at this hour. Hundreds of LED billboards flashed, begging for your attention, but everything seemed drowned out by the huge, neon homage to The Eye. A wave of uneasiness comes over you, as The Eye stares back at you, the constant reminder of the New Era. Your watch beeps, alerting you that it is now curfew. As you turn to leave, you see something highly unusual- a small graffiti tag scribbled on the wall of a decommissioned building. In big, bold letters, it reads:
𝐃𝐎 𝐍𝐎𝐓 𝐇𝐄𝐒𝐈𝐒𝐓𝐀𝐓𝐄
𝐓𝐇𝐄𝐘 𝐒𝐄𝐄 𝐄𝐕𝐄𝐑𝐘𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐍𝐆
Beneath it, you see a small shred of paper tacked to the building with your name on it. With the message in mind, you hastily grab it, walking at a brisk pace, but not too brisk, otherwise you might raise suspicion from The Eye. You discretely peek at the paper, and one side depicts a logo in the shape of a “W”. You had seen this image before, the signifier for the underground movement: W.A.V.E.S. Upon turning it over, coordinates, a date, and a time:
This is your chance, rendezvous at the coordinates at the time listed and become a part of the movement~

Waves Presents: Underworld
In a mythical Underworld, gods and monsters roam beneath the physical realm, their epic tales told through art and literature. The creatures of this Underworld are magical beings, belonging to an omnipresent universe, existing somewhere beneath the depths of the ocean and the ends of the earth. The Underworld is a dynamic environment, home to the Fields of Elysium- where some fortunate souls were granted admission to this virtual paradise, while others found eternal damnation in the darkness of Tartarus.
Its gates keep out the grievances a soul may face during their time in the physical realm; and upon entering Underworld, leave your afflictions behind and become fully immersed in the magic of the Underworld.

Waves Presents: Biolumina
Hidden in the depths of the ocean where no light can reach, bioluminescent creatures glow like crystalline embers of sparkling stars, invoking cosmic, lunar magic. An evolutionary marvel, these creatures create a pervasive show of light, mesmerizing the world around them by brightening even the darkest of places.
Join us for WAVES Presents: Biolumina us as we dive deep into the production of light and sound; bringing light to life. We will be constructing a bioluminescent environment of our own- a place symbolizing the ability to bring light to dark times, with the support of our team, and our love for the gift that is music and art: its ability to heal, comfort, bring people together, and offer an escape from a reality where those qualities are sometimes lacking.

Waves Presents: Clockworked
Time is but an illusion, yet an integral thread weaving the fabric of the universe. Like sands through the hourglass, our reality mandates we fall through the hands of time, only to be left with our distant memories: traces left by time itself.
It is here, where we will come together to warp time, creating a dimension where the beat of the music and flashing of the lights will make time stand still; the seconds feeling like hours and the hours feeling like seconds. An instant with no concept of past or future, only the thrill of the present moment transcoding into memories lasting a lifetime.

WAVES Presents: Midnight Jungle
Far beyond the intertwined limbs of lush greenery, exists the Midnight Jungle, a magical place created by spirited combustion, and invoked by cosmic, lunar magic. It comes alive at night, with pulsing lights and rhythmic sounds enchanted by the sublimity of nature.

WAVES 4.0: The Unkn?wn
Each night we drift off into the depths of our dreams, imagining entire worlds inside our heads while our other selves take solace from reality. Upon awakening, we can feel disoriented, out of place, at a loss, and confused as the memories of our previous night’s dream slip away. These alternate realities live somewhere deep inside us; but will always remain unknown. The fourth event in the WAVES series aims to tap into these secrets kept by our unconscious selves- creating a surreal experience with hypnotic visuals and artwork, mind-bending sounds, mesmerizing aerial performances. This event will be curated in three parts: “Genesis,” “Lucid,” and “The Awakening”, with select styles of music and visuals to capture the essence of a dream. Witness WAVES transform their dreams into reality with the curation of “The Unkn?wn” for one night only, September 29th, from 9 pm to 2 am at Fred Wildlife Refuge in Seattle, Washington.

Join us for WAVES 3.0: Synchromatic, on June 9th 2017, at Fred Wildlife Refuge on Capitol Hill, from 8 pm – 12 am. We will be transforming Fred Wildlife Refuge into an immersive arts experience, with mind-bending sounds, four art installations, a visual experience mapped on the 60’ x 20’ projection wall, and an aerial art performance. This event will undoubtedly be a pinnacle of artistic exhibition. WAVES and “Synchromatic” are the result of collaborative efforts rooted within relationships formed through the shared love of the electronic music scene and the dynamic culture that it encompasses. It is through this collective visioning that we have been able to grow as artists in ways never imagined, and has ultimately lead us to the creation of "WAVES," and this event aptly named “Synchromatic." This is the electronic music scene re-imagined, and we hope you will come participate in helping us make “WAVES”.

We are happy to present 'WAVES 2.0' at the Whit’s End in Phinney Ridge. With the addition of up and coming artists “Frida K” and “C-Dubz,” WAVES 2.0 will encompass even more talent on the roster, along with custom-visual projections curated by artist and cofounder of WAVES, Hannah Selene. WAVES is a brand-new event company that aims to address the growing need in the Seattle electronic music scene for an event series that is 'outside the box' of the current industry standards, particularly where musical diversity and variation may be lacking. Although still in its infancy, WAVES aims to fill that gap through grassroots organization and progressively-minded operation. Join us Friday, May 5th for our second WAVES event, and witness the beginning of our journey towards making “waves” throughout the electronic music community.
