About this Event
Join us at Books on the Park for an evening of experimental music to benefit the Prisoners Literature Project. Hauras and silo homes, two musicians with close connections to the shop, will be performing live for the first time in several years and are looking forward to sharing new work. 

About Hauras
Hauras is interested in employing repetition, decay and chaos to help find a space where a song can exist.

In doing so, Hauras attempts to expose and explore the psychology of society at the end of civilization.

Chant and Shadow.

Drone as Anthropology.

Howard Ryan is Hauras.

About silo homes
silo homes is the self-described “agoraphobic drone country” project of former bookseller Matt Carney. It seeks to balance spatial, timbral, and melodic considerations to create something equally searching and welcoming. Matt has been fortunate to share the stage with performers as varied as Angel OlsenJapanese Breakfast, and Six Organs of Admittance; he has also composed music for dance performances and podcasts, and provided field recordings for the adventure game NORCO

About the Prisoners Literature Project
The Prisoners Literature Project is an inclusive, all-volunteer, grassroots nonprofit whose purpose is to encourage reading, the pursuit of knowledge, and self-determination among incarcerated people. By sending free reading materials to those behind bars, PLP aims to foster learning and critical thinking and help prepare people to lead successful lives after incarceration. We believe that all people have a right to read.

We recognize that many incarcerated people lack formal education, and the PLP strives to remedy that by providing books that impart knowledge. We also provide genre fiction because we understand that incarcerated people need to pass the time. Through the books that we send, we demonstrate that there are many possibilities for how to live.

In operation for more than 30 years, our U.S. prison books program has gotten (literally) tons of free books into the American prison system, while staying entirely grassroots. We have no paid employees and 100% of donations go to postage, rent, office supplies and purchase of discount copies of frequently requested books such as dictionaries and vocational materials.
