Performing in Radiant Matter
Amanda Schmidt is a musician and atmospheric visionary who has lived in Baltimore since 2007. She is interested in creating beautiful immersive environments in which sounds, visions, feelings, smells, and/or tastes merge together to evoke heightened states of nostalgia and childhood euphoria. Sometimes playful and silly, sometimes meditative and surreal, she is deeply inspired by raw and vulnerable expressions of soul and the ecstatic liberation that can be experienced in such states. She was a co-founder of the Soft House, a DIY venue dedicated to pushing the boundaries of show experiences, and a co-director of Fields Festival, a magical camping music experience that brings music, visual art, performance, dance, theater, and more into nature for a weekend.
