Hark Madley is the solo project of Los Angeles based composer & producer Mark Hadley. The music is a coalescence of electronic and organic elements, drawing inspiration from nature, films and life itself. Hark Madley’s debut EP, aptly titled “EP1”, was written and produced by the artist in his studio and released in March 2017. The EP is comprised of 6 songs which weave between ambient and found sound beat-driven music, with original sounds and occasional vocals combined with collaborations with a handful of musicians who elevated the music with their talents on harp, saxophone, clarinet, flute, and drums. It has been received well, drawing comparisons to the likes of Tycho, Jon Hopkins, and Bonobo. The follow up to EP1 will be a full album, currently being written and will be ready for release in early-mid 2019.

r beny is the electronic ambient project of California-based artist Austin Cairns. Through the use of modular synthesizers, samplers, and tape loops, Cairns weaves a sonic bouquet of textures and melodies that recall forest drives, coastal cliffs, and lost loves.
