YACHT is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans of Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA. All people are welcome to become members of YACHT. Accordingly, YACHT is and always will be what YACHT is when YACHT is standing before you.

YACHT believes in reforming an adequate language by coining new words and examining the meaning of existing words. For example, Utopia means "No Place." Thus YACHT understands its quest is in movement, not a resting point. For example, "I" is a story we tell ourselves. Thus YACHT seeks the undifferentiated collective experience.

YACHT understands that to feel part of the world is to be engaged in creative activity. However, creative output is powerless without contact with a spectator, who completes the creative act and brings it into contact with the world by registering its existence and interpreting its value.

YACHT believes art and spirituality are inseparable; both are concerned with the creation of something from nothing, with form without antecedent. The feeling or moment of creation is a kind of spiritual high that can be achieved by anyone with the willingness to transmute an idea into form. When we create something, we relive the first spark into consciousness of both the microcosm (ourselves) and the macrocosm (our universe). Art is ontological birth. No religious culture is without an image-making culture. In more ancient religions, the making of images is the spiritual act itself.

YACHT seeks to explore frontiers and to expand awareness of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI). There is nothing marginal about acknowledging the greater possibility of life in the cosmos; it is chauvinistic, beyond the pale, to imagine otherwise.

YACHT believes that in the province of the mind, there are no limits. Every person is the master of their own neurological experience. Our minds contain the universe, by the act of comprehending it.

YACHT encourages the testing of these ideas in the laboratory of your own nervous system.

YACHT knows that to confront the world without ideas is to see the formless void.

YACHT encourages online dissemination of all things.

YACHT believes "Free Wi Fi" is not an advertisement of services, but a political statement.

Midi Matilda

The indie electro-pop duo Midi Matilda has barely begun their career yet has already made a permanent impression on the music community. The Bay Area outfit exploded onto the online scene with dozens of enthusiastic mentions about their debut single, "Day Dream," including The Huffington Post and Neon Gold Records, which propelled them to an impressive near-top placement on The Hype Machine. In addition, the accompanying self-produced music video for that single, has garnered extensive positive attention across varied media formats that includes radio, as well as online.

Midi Matilda was born of gifted musical poets Skyler Kilborn and Logan Grimé, who serendipitously met in college in 2008, while learning the production skills they would ultimately use to form this innovative and self-contained project. They have been making music together since, and ever evolving in their collaborative sound. Their refreshing style brings together the best of live instrumentation, synthesizers, gorgeous vocals, and the open spaces of consciousness, to take all who listen on a journey into the ether.
