Guest of Honour: Avian Invasion

Character looking out on the horizon, by Furnal Equinox 2023 Guest of Honour Cheetahpaws

Once an ordinary human—aging, broken, bereft of hope—the being now known as Bird One
was rebuilt by a race of robotic birds from a distant galaxy. Now his mission is to use the
uplifting sounds of music to infuse light wherever there is darkness. The Avian Invasion begins
now. Avian Invasion proudly services the audiences that typical Earth DJ’s overlook: the
outcasts, the queer, those who defy categorization and disrupt the “normal.”

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Bird One brought hope to viewers through uniquely interactive
streams three days a week. He’s performed on hundreds of stages at conventions, clubs, and VR
worlds—anywhere he can blend the emotional vibes of progressive house and trance with rock inspired keytar riffs and live vocals.

And through it all, Avian Invasion’s message is simple:
You are alive, you are beautiful, and you are not alone.
