Re:Sound is an experimental music series which explores the relationship between forgotten spaces, sound abstraction and the natural environment. The series takes place on the Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve, a 215-acre park that formerly served as one of the first Naval Ammunition Depots.

The event is held in a concrete munitions storage magazine measuring 55'x100' with ceilings over 15'. The architecture of the building traps sound resulting in a prolonged reverberation.

Jeph Jerman (Cottonwood, AZ) and Tim Barnes (Louisville, KY) tour California in support of their recent LP "Versatile Ambience" following up their duo CD "Matterings" released by Erstwhile Records. Jeph and Tim explore a world of sound both electronic and acoustic, found and created, expressive and concrete.

Joe Colley has spent years exploring the multiple conceptual possibilities of sound, through music production, installations, or collaborations with video artists, dancers, and even prisoners. His latest installations attempted to dissimulate the artist by concentrating on the instigation of unstable situations unique to the composition of random sound. Colley first began recording under the moniker Crawl Unit in 1993, and later dropped the name in favor of his given name in 2001.

Michael Gendreau has composed and performed solo as well as in several group configurations since 1979. His former group, Crawling With Tarts (1983 – 1998), expressed ideas within elementalism and pre-language states. Gendreau has elaborated on this while adding concepts inspired by his studies of physics, parataxis, philosophies centered on temporal and environmental persistence; and his experiments with small motors and turntable mechanisms.
