Interspecies Communication ’65
Inspired by a NASA funded study into interspecies communication between humans and dolphins. The study started in 1958 but in the mid-sixties it took some wild turns when LSD was applied to speed up the process. This is our tribute to those fearless explorers of the inner realm. Particularly, Peter, the dolphin. Who received most, if not all, the LSD.

Phog Masheeen is a sound art/video collective from Costa Mesa, California that focuses on using aerophones, idiophones and electronics for performance and sound design. The resulting sound designs have found their way into soundtracks for podcasts and video productions. Phog masheeen also curates events and promotes the Wonder Valley Experimental Festival in ….Wonder Valley.

Phog masheeen began in 2007 at the Electro-Music Festival in Philadelphia, PA. Video was integrated early on, with an emphasis on live mixed video. When the pandemic arrived, Phog masheeen pivoted to the streaming platforms, organizing virtual events. Such as Santa Ana Noise Fest, Soundwave Festival and Wonder Valley Experimental Festival.

The visual component of these events is handled by William Almas of Almas Art Video. Mark Soden Jr is charged with providing the audio presentation and the two of them comprise Phog masheeen in this instance.

Artist Location: Long Beach, CA and Costa Mesa, CA
