Joe Lasqo came to this music via a wandering path that’s taken him through classical music studies in India, jazz studies in smoke-filled bars, computer music studies at MIT, Columbia & Berkeley CNMAT, & living (and listening) for years in various Asian countries. He plays piano/keyboards, percussion, and Max/MSP as a solo performer and in collaborations with musicians and instrument-inventors. Besides loving and playing the traditional musics of Asia and elsewhere with some very non-traditional instrumentation, he also uses Asian tools to build music with the compositional advances and new concepts of jazz and 20th-century music -- Stockhausen-type tone or timbre rows developed in Indian composition/improvisation structures, atonal and/or non-octave ragas, stochastic tala structures, ragam-tanam-pallavi leadsheets, and shakuhachi and gagaku pieces transmigrated into 21st-century bodies.

Ross Hammond is a guitarist, producer, improviser and composer living in Sacramento with equal parts in improvisation and composed.
Often the music he creates is completely improvised. He is also involved in acoustic, roots based music. as well as working with singers, songwriters, poets and dancers. He also runs the weekly Nebraska Monday's music series at Luna's Cafe and In the Flow Festival.
