Joshua Marshall is an Oakland-based saxophonist and composer/improviser. His work involves architectural innovation, narrativity, systematic improvisatory practice, and live digital media. He has studied with Roscoe Mitchell, Fred Frith, Pauline Oliveros, Evan Parker, Zeena Parkins, Butch Rovan, I.M. Harjito, and Steve Adams of the ROVA Saxophone Quartet. Joshua has played and/or recorded with Opera Wolf, The Lords of Outland, Architect/Enchantress, Bill Noertker's Moxie, Medium Sized Band, ELL3, Cheer Accident, Josh Allen's Deconstruction Orchestra, Key West, Mister Sister, Ikue Mori, Robocop, the Andrew Weathers Ensemble, Modest Machine, and MDK. His music has been featured in festivals and conferences nationwide, including Providence Pixilerations events, the 2010 International Computer Music Conference and 2013's Outsound Summit. Joshua graduated from Brown University, earning a B.A. through the MEME program, and holds an M.F.A. in music from Mills College.
An avid improviser at heart, plectrum banjoist Tracy Hui is working to cull the full diversity of sounds that he can conjure from his chosen instrument. Timbres that recall bouzouki, sitar, san xian, old time flailing, 3 finger style, irish tenor, jazz age plectrum, guitar, mandolin and percussion flow in cascades creating an intricately rhythmic and lyrically expressive banjo style. He does all this while playing percussion with his feet and singing/growling out his outlaw poetics.
