Her work utilizes randomized electronics and extended techniques to explore fragility and imaginaries. Recent solo performances have been presented internationally by e-flux, Experimental Sound Studio Chicago, Big Ears Festival, default, and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Dorothy has been featured as an artist and collaborator in projects presented at the Swiss Institute (New York), Night Gallery (Los Angeles), Artists Space (New York), Performance Space (New York), Untitled Art Fair (Miami), Gaudeamus Festival (Utrecht, NL) and the Fall River Museum of Contemporary Art. Her work has been featured in Artforum, The Wire, The Quietus, and the Chicago Reader.

Other recent collaborators include Catalina Ouyang, mayfield brooks, Poncili Creacion, and Shala Miller. Dorothy holds a Bachelor’s degree from NYU where she studied classical cello and anthropology on full scholarship, and an MFA in sound from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She is the current Alba Artist in Residence at Experimental Sound Studio Chicago. Michael Masaru Flora is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Ben Lomond, California. Working within the intersections of art, science, music, and mathematics, he is interested in the emergent phenomena that occurs through non-deterministic and autopoietic processes. Informed by architecture, systems, perceptual psychology, visual art, and computer music, his works often take the form of large scale installation and performance. Kevin CK Lo is a composer, choreographer, writer and artist living on Chechenyo Ohlone land. In his compositions for live performance and installation, he utilizes instruments, digital sound processing, generative programming environments, and dance to examine spatial and auditory sensitivities, topological structure and audience kinesthetic response while seeking to corrupt conventional compositional/performative/installative rationale.
