Josh Martin is 1/3 of the band VOCO and 1/2 of the experimental unit Conan The Barbiturate- both heavily amplified endeavors. This will be his first formal solo bass set, and will use no effects or looping of any kind. Only a 1968 well-weathered Univox bass and a tiny amp.

Jorge Bachmann is a media artist, experimental composer and curator based in San Francisco. He is also a founder member of MEI collective a multidisciplinary group of artists. Working across a wide range of explorations, Bachmann’s work is eclectic, going from subtle “musique concrete” soundscapes to analog synth minimalism. Since the early 1980’s he has been exploring the strange, unique and microcosmic sounds of everyday life. collecting filed recordings and creating soundscapes meant for deep listening Jaroba(James Robert Barnes) is woodwinds, electronics and invented instruments. Since 1988 Jaroba has been exploring jazz, free jazz, improv music and intuitive music. As a composer he has used electronics and found sounds to create a sonic landscape for films and stage productions.
Kevin Corcoran works with an open interest in sound as medium as it moves through contexts of art, music, ecology, and communication in performance and fixed media pieces. As a percussionist he is most interested in techniques which extend the sonic possibilities of the instrument emphasizing textural sound, friction, sympathetic vibration, sustained tones and the use of found objects. In this way, emphasis is placed on the freely arranging sonic events in duration rather than marking time by rhythm.
