The Crystal Ark

The Crystal Ark is the collaborative, body-centric, New York pop project of Gavin Russom and Viva Ruiz. The group began when Russom asked Ruiz to write and sing Spanish lyrics over a pair of instrumentals he had created blending his signature hypnotic synthesizer sound with distinctly movement friendly beats. Ruiz's fevered vocalizations, which blended song, spell and rallying cry, took these pieces to new heights and the result was the group's first two singles released on New York's DFA label: "The City Never Sleeps" and "The Tangible Presence of the Miraculous".
