Fossil Beach Farms: Sunday Sessions – Half/Asian + Amy the CODA
July 16 @ 5:00 pm
Featured artist: Half/Asian + Amy the CODA
Half/Asian + Amy the CODA are an audio-visual performing duo creating art that is rooted in identity exploration and embodiment. HALF/ASIAN plays synthesizers from the 80’s purchased at thrift stores and sings in English. Amy the CODA sings in both English and Sign Language. Amy’s mother is Deaf and Pidgin Signed English is Amy’s first language.
For Ian, it started with the purchase of a Yamaha PSR 36 from Value Village – and has grown into a distinct sound that pushes the boundaries of synthesizer programming – going beyond the parameters it was designed for. The lyricism ranges from fractured poetry to poignant storytelling and narratives. Their sound has been likened to Chromeo and early Gorillaz, mixed with George Harrison.
For Amy, it started with signing along to one of Ian’s songs recreationally and realizing that she had lost the majority of her sign language fluency through having a profession that is not centered around the deaf community and interpreting. Her performance fully embraces her bi-lingual and bi-cultural identity as a CODA (Child of a Deaf Adult) by including both spoken language and signed language.
