Lucio Menegon is a guitarist and sonic artist. His work encompasses melodic composition, avant garde improvisation, ambient soundscape, weird pop, film soundtrack and experimental rock.

Staiano.

Collette McCaslin is a San Francisco Bay Area based player of the Cornet, noisician,abstract artist, and writer. In her youth she explored plunder-phonics as a means of expression “composing” tape works comprised of snippets of radio static, college radio and death metal.
As a teenager she was heavily influenced by her family to explore the realms of jazz, she played the saxophone at Cabrillo College. Her own interests diverged however, when she began working with guitar.Her first album "Machine" is a layered work of looping...
At some point in the last ten years she started working with analogue FX boxes and doing feedback based electronics. With that setup she has played in numerous situations. Including "Lords of Outland" where she interacts with other musicians, live, with a feedback based instrument. As well as headlining at NorCal Noise Fest many years in a row...
Later, she began playing the Cornet...which is currently her favorite instrument. She plays in Forward Energy, Lords of Outland, and various improvisational Orchestras.
