Sur Back:

Sur Back is the experimental pop brainchild of former Florida ballerina, Caroline Sans. A producer at heart, Caroline marries layered combinations of guitars, vocals, and beats with string and brass instruments—producing a sound that’s equal parts whimsical and arresting. In live performance, she rounds out this synthesis with choreographed and improvised movements. Caroline draws the name of her moniker from a natural phenomenon described as "the green ray," first observed by Arctic explorer Sir George Back. The green ray is also said to be a philosophical phenomenon—a moment of epiphany where your thoughts, and the thoughts of those around you are perfectly understood—a struggle that plays a clear role throughout Caroline's tracks. "Sir" was changed to "Sur" to imply the Turkish translation of "sur"—"steer"— in hopes the music will "steer back" its listeners to epiphanies of their own.



sound/performance artist exploring and dissecting the pop archetype and narrative. inspired by those who seek liberation and sensual fluency.



QUALIATIK is the multimedia project of producer, singer, songwriter, and new media artist Arielle Herman, who began making music while studying neuroscience at Haverford College. Ethereal soundscapes erupt into frenetic percussion and driving vocals, equal parts soulful, sensual, and biting. Her feverishly introspective music has been described as progressive, beat-driven experimental pop—ethereal, restless, and bursting with life. QUALIATIK's work explores consciousness, self-observation, neurosis, intimacy, and self-identity in the age of technology, molding sound to mirror deep and nuanced emotional landscapes.


From the moment we wake up, many of us are already looking forward to climbing back into bed. Into warmth, into safety and the odd comfort of suspension where time seems to stretch just as much forward as it does back. It is also when we are the most vulnerable.

Nightspace evokes those in-between times, when the dark part of your consciousness is wrapping its fingers around and opening up for you to take a look inside.
