Camp Wavelength 2016 Champions Connective Kinetics


Odonis Odonis: Sound Barrier Eliminator.



Pursuit Grooves DJ demands the attention of your booty and all points south. Dance 'til you blue in the foot.




In Synch merges with the currents and bedazzles the waves. Cory Latkovich surges in accord.
Rosina from LAL takes a lake break.






Different smokes for different strokes.


Cloud Nothings saturate the twilight with emergency frequencies.


BART: Blew The Whole Machine Apart



Giant Insects battling for your heart. Dance Dance Party Puppets infestation.









Bruce Peninsula brought a spritz, then a rainbow out with their prismatic harmonies.

Lydia Ainsworth's electric mood-shadows and artisanal echoes instilled some deep choreography into the evening.


YOUNG GALAXY closed the show with gradual evanescence and shimmering tactile motility. 

Things and affinities were made.
