Emily Dix Thomas describes her music as being, “a wave, of course. A wave against the rocks. A sound wave entering the ear.” EDT is the cello and voice, ocean and sound project of Emily Dix Thomas (The Huntress and Holder of Hands, Nova One, Feminist Conference). Following her set, Joel Thibodeau performs a rare short solo Death Vessel set.
