Cutler / McLemore:
Mark Cutler and Sam McLemore are NYC/Portland-based sound artists working with field recording and improvisation.
Vytia & Nicole Vella
Vytia is the audio project of Morgan Emily Wirthlin, evolutionary neurobiologist at Carnegie Mellon University. Her works traverse spaces spanning dark ambient landscapes to glitch and black metal using a diversity of approaches, from modular synthesis to tape manipulation and processed field recordings.
Nicole Vella is an emerging computer artist whose work is influenced by concepts such as Chaos Theory and the Singularity. Using an interdisciplinary approach, she creates art that combines both the digital and the analog.
Devin DiSanto is a performer/composer/musician who lives in NY. He has been releasing recordings since 2013 that includes a solo release and a couple collaborations (Taku Unami, Nick Hoffman) on Erstwhile/ErstAeu. Currently he has been working on a recording for summer 2021 on Rope Editions. A common focus in his projects is the (ever failing) attempt to compare and contrast the dynamic curves of behavior associated with musicianship, and task oriented performance through the use of audio / field recording and playback.
Hannah Ellul & Rebecca Wilcox
Hannah Ellul is a Glasgow-based musician and artist working primarily in sound, text, and performance. She is interested in sound as a bodily disturbance: listening as an activity that does not allow us to put a clear distance between ourselves and things, but inflects our encounters with the places and bodies that surround us in unexpected ways. She makes music as part of Human Heads and White Death. She is also the co-founder of the collaborative project Psykick Dancehall, exploring sonic experience across forms and disciplines.
Rebecca Wilcox lives in Glasgow and works with writing, audio and performance, often using voice as a tool. She's interested in apperception, haptics and the poetics available in the leaps between sensory engagements and the written and spoken word.
Choi Joonyong is from Seoul, South Korea. He founded Astronoise (the first noise project in Korea) with Hong Chulki in 1996. He is interested in control and failure of playing by improvisation and composition. Recently he is working on performances focusing on inferior sound/playing. He has released six solo albums such as DANTHRAX which is made with malfunction of CD-player. He produces and designs albums of a label called ‘Balloon & Needle’ since 2000. He also plays bass guitar in a doom metal band 'Vomit & Tear’ with members of SklavenTanz.
David Grubbs & Taku Unami
David Grubbs has played in Gastr del Sol, the Red Krayola, and Squirrel Bait and performed with Tony Conrad, Susan Howe, Pauline Oliveros, Will Oldham, and many others. He’s the author of the books The Voice in the Headphones, Now that the audience is assembled, and Records Ruin the Landscape.
Taku Unami’s work is influenced by science fiction, supernatural horror and weird fiction. He’s the composer of film scores for directors including Isao Okishima and Takeshi Furusawa, is one-third of the group Hontatedori, and has collaborated with, among others, Annette Krebs, Radu Malfatti, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Jarrod Fowler, Toshiya Tsunoda, and Graham Lambkin.
