The Blow is an electronic pop duo comprised of Khaela Maricich and Melissa Dyne. The shows on the upcoming tour are an open laboratory for experimentation using the elements that each artist has been honing over the years. The artistic styles and strengths of each member of The Blow reflects the different ways in which each one dreams at night. Dyne works with the physics of sound and light: In sleep she dreams of being a beam of light bouncing off of a Ferrari. She has worked predominantly as an installation and sound artist, and from her post in the back she manipulates electronic instruments, shooting waves of frequency and light like a wizard hidden by the fireworks. Maricich's dreams are filled with imaginary words and odd scenarios: During performances she plays with melody and narrative and gesture, bouncing herself off of whatever materials are thrown in her direction.
