About The Hum Series
The Hum is an all female/gender queer concert series that celebrates, instigates, and nourishes the community of female musicians in New York City and beyond. Since its formation in April 2015, the series has fostered collaborations between 200+ female and female-identifying musicians including Kimbra, Rachael Price, Yuka Honda, Adrienne Lenker, Olga Bell, Kelsey Lu, members of Tune-Yards, The Cranberries, Cat Power and The Julie Ruin. HUM concerts feature only women on stage, and all walks of life in attendance.
Each installment of the series invites a group of female identified/gender queer musicians to form impromptu “dream bands” bands, shedding the usual dynamics of their main projects and exploring new avenues of their creativity. Long-lasting friendships, creative relationships, and even bands have emerged from these collaborations – not to mention magical results on our stage. The music crosses a constellation of genres and influences, all coming together to form a space where women are linked – not ranked – and celebrated for their artistry on its own terms.

Glasser & L’Rain
L’Rain is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and singer whose sound borrows equally from 90’s R&B, music concrete, and ambient soundscapes. Both flippantly celebratory and lusciously introspective, her music is a meditation on the following: “The new black music is this: find the self and kill it.”
“…one-woman studio band…that’s a sea of loops: guitar arpeggios, synthesizer burbles, endless layers of vocal harmony.”
JON PARELES, NEW YORK TIMES
“…filled with experiments in looping, field recording, layered vocals and guitar arpeggios that call to mind th best moments of Stereolab or Frank Ocean’s Endless.”
TINY MIX TAPES
“A swelling orchestra of lush soundscapes and hypnotizing, layered melodies…multi-instrumentalist L’Rain…is beyond lovely. Soft spoken , at times, but pulsating with warmth…a gripping roller coaster of unexpected sounds and emotions…”
Arone Dyer’s Dronechoir
Dronechoir combines unfamiliar collaborators with an unrehearsed performance that continuously reshapes itself through space-specific movement directions, physically foregrounding specific singers at different points in the carefully-composed piece, bringing depth to the listener’s experience by challenging comfort barriers and introducing a heightened sense of engagement with the performance.
Arone Dyer has presented over 10 Dronechoir performances since 2015, from Hudson, NY, to Berlin, Germany, with anywhere from 4 to 24 vocalists, and most recently presented a successful collaboration with poet Mahogany L. Browne for Ecstatic Music Festival in NYC.
MIHO HATORI is a singer/musician/visual artist, primarily known as the vocalist of the legendary NYC group, Cibo Matto.
She has been collaborating with and being featured on many artists like Beastie Boys, Gorillaz, Handsome Boy Modeling School and etc…
She is working on her solo projects, New Optimism and Miss Information (releasing in summer of 2017) now.
Miho is originally from Tokyo, but has been working and living NYC for too many years.
Ziemba, Marilu Donovan, Elizabeth LoPiccolo & Mara Mayer
Ziemba’s multisensory performances offer an alchemy that is both alien and familiar.
The Brooklyn-based composer, perfumer, geographer, and vocalist builds oozy architectures using fragrance, sound, costume, and the sincerest of theatrics. She recently founded Ardis Multiverse, a sonic fragrance imprint and artists alliance, and has spent the past year touring nationally and internationally in support of her debut album, “Hope is Never.” In the fall of 2017, Ziemba presented original sonic fragrance work at MoMA Ps1 and National Sawdust, and released music video “El Paso” which doubled as an underground history of the U.S./Mexico border, accompanied by an op-ed on Teen Vogue about women-led resistance on the border. She is currently immersed in “ARDIS,” her forthcoming album, a feminist sci-fi fragrant musical & wholly consuming parallel universe.
As Ziemba, René Kladzyk has shown work widely within NYC at venues including:
La Mama, MoMA Ps1, National Sawdust, Fourth Arts Block/ Creative Time, Superchief Gallery, CUE Art Foundation, Momenta Art, Queens Museum, Trans Pecos, and more. She has toured nationally and internationally at arts and music venues, and has held artist residencies with the French Institute in Fez, Morocco, and Guerilla Scienceʼs Fire Organ. She has written original scores for NYC dance companies, soundtracked Comedy Central’s Broad City, offered costume design and creative direction services to fellow artists in Brooklyn’s DIY scene, and currently leads an experimental vocal group named XHOIR with fellow artists Colin Self and Caitlin Baucom.
