He has also collaborated with The Kate Foley Dance Company, Club Foot Orchestra, Butoh dancer Kinji Hayashi and others.

Dean Santomieri has been working with electronic music and musique concrete since 1971, as well as creating multi-image pieces. He has employed live electronic music, slides and video, story-telling, costumes, and props in his many Bay Area performances. CD releases include The Boy Beneath The Sea and Redblue with Thea Farhadian.

Bryan Day is a improviser, instrument inventor, illustrator and installation artist based in Richmond, CA. His work involves combining elements of the natural and man-made world using field recordings, custom audio generation software and homemade instruments. Day’s work explores the parallels between the patterns and systems in nature to those in contemporary society. He has toured throughout the US, Europe, Japan, Korea, Argentina and Mexico, performing both solo as Sistrum and Eloine and in the Shelf Life and Seeded Plain ensembles.
