Dolphin Midwives

Dolphin Midwives

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 various contemporary art centers and venues on the west coast, including DisjectaS1PICACoaxial Arts, and Columbia City Theatre, and shared her work at TBA FestDebacle FestPDX POP NOWOlympia Experimental Music FestivalSubharmonicThe Wayward Music Series and the CMG’s Improv Summit of Portland.  In 2016, she released Orchid Milk, her first recording under the Dolphin Midwives moniker.  Her installation, NATURAPHONES, was shown in 2017 at The Bison Building, as a culmination of a six month residency for PNCA+OCAC’s ACD program, and featured four large-scale acoustic sculptures, ambient performance, and several 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.

About Lola's Room

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom and/or Lola's Room Passport Stamps?

A Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room & Crystal Brewery Tour occurs daily at 2 p.m. - meet at Ringlers Pub (street level below the Crystal Ballroom.) The tour takes about half an hour to complete. Any questions may be directed to the Crystal box office, 503-225-0047.

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp. Please note that if you’re attending an event in the Crystal Ballroom, you will need to attend a separate event in Lola’s Room to get the Lola’s stamp and vice versa. Stamps are always exclusively available in their own venue. 
 
Please note: Due to private events, concert setup needs and brewers’ schedules, not all spaces are guaranteed to be available to tour daily, but our staff will give it our best shot and show you the spaces that we can.
