Sage Elaine Fisher is an American composer, performer and sound artist based in Portland, OR. She is best known for her performance project, Dolphin Midwives, which abstracts harp, voice and percussion using electronics, extended techniques and ritual processes.
She explores themes of empathy, natural cycles, vulnerability, transformation and technology through social experiment, meditation, psychoacoustics and magic.
She has performed at contemporary art centers and venues on the west coast, including Disjecta, S1, PICA, Coaxial, and Columbia City Theatre, and shared her work at TBA Fest, Debacle Fest, PDX POP NOW, OEMF, Subharmonic, and the CMG’s Improv Summit of Portland. In 2016, she released her debut Orchid Milk on limited edition cassette. Her installation, NATURAPHONES, was shown in 2017 at The Bison Building, and featured four large-scale acoustic sculptures, ambient performance, and sculptural prototypes. She founded and directed the Dröna Choir to perform her new choral work, invisibility ritual; performed on the new moon in total darkness, it explored the vast space between silence and sound. In 2018 she composed a new score for Night of the Living Dead, commissioned by the PJCE and supported by a RACC grant. Her sound art performance/installation, Break: preparations for the apocalypse, was shown at Variform Gallery in Dec 2018. Her sophomore album, Liminal Garden, (Sounds et al/Beacon Sound), was released Jan 18, 2019 to critics' acclaim.
