Tony Dryer performs in the US and abroad as an improvising double bassist. In collaborative projects his sparse but solid sound world creates foundations for building, often drifting into the background with subtle textures. Tony as a solo performer uses similar techniques and sounds with more fragmented results. Website: http://www.myspace.com/tonydryerbass

Jacob Felix Heule is a percussionist and electronic musician focused on sound-oriented improvisation following the traditions of electro-acoustic improv, noise, and 20th-century composition. Heule has worked extensively with double bassist Tony Dryer since 2006, performing and recording with diverse musicians such as Michel Doneda, C Spencer Yeh, Loachfillet, Gino Robair, and Damon Smith.
