Intended to be more of a swap than a commercial venture, the items sold were more personal and creative. Still I wanted to share examples of artistic creations and links to people’s creative projects where it was known. Please contact me with any details I’ve missed so I can promote you!

Local Horror Rock band Murder Weapon

Murder Weapons is a five-piece, Shock Rock band from Seattle, Washington, U.S.A. The band was started in 2012 by Jesse Orr, then systematically the line-up seemed to fall in place. Jesse recruited keyboards, drums and guitar. The only piece missing was a singer and lyricist. Seattle veteran, Dawn Wood was that missing piece.” – https://www.discogs.com/artist/4463527-Murder-Weapons

Earlier projects – Elektronika (Dark Wave) and Endless Sunder (Industrial)

Elektronika is a darkwave/synth-pop project based in Tacoma, Washington that works with a variety of guest artists on its creative and inspiringly fresh sound. The band is heavily influenced by its new wave and synth-pop roots, but also experiments with trip hop, ambient and industrial genres.

Singer Dawn Wood has also lent her vocals to Seattle-based electronic artist Jyri Glynn for his solo project Anguisette. The Eletronika track “Bleed” appeared on the SINister Records compilation: Memento Mori: A Collection, released in 2010.” https://www.last.fm/music/Elektronika/+wiki
