CHELSEA SMARR, harpist from Frackville, PA
Chelsea whirls together an improvised cacophony of experimental compositions during her live performances. She has gained recognition as a solo international touring artist, using a variety of guitar pedals as well as bowed and percussive elements to create textural soundscapes. Smarr has recently released an album with Guillermo Pizarro, a sound artist from Green Lane, PA, through their collective project, Asucré. Smarr has also recently collaborated with Charlie Davis, an avant-garde composer from Wilkes-Barre, in the recording of his upcoming Doghouse Charlie album. Her sounds have made appearances in a variety of places, including performances in Montréal’s Jacuzzi Club, Kutztown University’s Planetarium, the Mauch Chunk Opera House, Pottsville’s Sovereign Majestic Theatre, the Susquehanna Art Museum of Harrisburg, and as a regular staple of various annual arts festivals in northeastern Pennsylvania.
