veronica


Veronica Pejril is a composer and multi-keyboardist from Greencastle, Indiana, where she teaches digital musicianship and computer music at DePauw University. An alumna of the University of Illinois Experimental Music Studios and Princeton’s computer music lab, she was an early explorer into the intersections of MIDI and sound synthesis and continues to explore non-traditional uses of human/computer interfaces for musical expression. Her current interests include applications of sound-spatialization for real-time interactive installation art, as well as for traditional through-composed music.

tyndyllyngs
Before forming Xeroid Entity with Greg Waltzer, Howard Moscovitz and Bill Fox were already playing together under the name Subspace since 2002. In 2010, they realized that they had made a resurgence as a duo and became Twyndyllyngs, performing weekly internet broadcasts (Chez Mosc) on electro-music radio. Also, Greg had moved away to Asheville, NC.
They use guitar, lap steel guitar, Nord Modular synthesizers, Theremin, and iPads. Bill and Howard have very broad musical interests ranging from Claudio Monteverdi to Charles Shriner. They call their music Electronic Chamber Music. It is intended to be performed live in relatively small spaces.
Howard is the founder of electro-music.com. Bill is the producer of several FM radio programs including Galactic Travels on WDIY in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. They both travel widely performing electro-music and frequently collaborate with other musicians.

Surrealestate

Surrealestate is a musical experience that utilizes visual and sonic textures reminiscent of the Old Berlin style of electronic synth music. Surrealestate was formed five years ago with original members Kelly Sheets, Bunny Sheets, and Randy Schwartz. After Randy’s departure, long time friend and associate Jim Curry has contributed his musical creativity to Surrealestate. Surrealestate evolved from Kelly and Bunny’s collective band experiences which included Gravity Hill and Interstellar Electric Gnomes. Jim Curry has been involved in multiple genres and played with bands with tastes ranging from Grateful Dead, Psychodellia, Blues, and Bluegrass. Former band member, Randy Schwartz, contributed his experiences from Tombstone Valentine and added his own unique style through synths, delays, and violin.

Currently Surrealestate enjoys playing Old School Berlin using restored Moog vintage synths and other vintage equipment collected over the years. When required, styles include upbeat techno, psychill, ambient, and trance. Lighting and stage props are occasionally utilized to add to the experience.

shannon

Shannon Hayden is a classically trained cellist who has never been content to stay strictly within the confines of the traditional course of study. Having achieved early success in competitions both at home and abroad she quickly began to experiment with other forms of music as well as other instruments. Working with renowned cellists such as Janos Starker and Aldo Parisot, with whom she began a graduate level course of study at the age of 18 at the Yale School of Music, did not keep her from playing lead guitar in rock and experimental bands or writing music for amplified cello. She feels that musicians who want to consider themselves artists should go beyond mere craftsmanship and constantly look to expand the repertoire of their instrument, fulfilling the needs of the era within which they actively participate. When not performing her own pieces, Shannon focuses on 20th century and contemporary works and has enjoyed working with composers Ezra Laderman, David Lang, percussionist/composer Andy Akiho, Fay Wang and tours occasionally with Eric Genuis. Having completed her studies she is currently supporting her first album with shows around the United States and hopes to meet other artists with similar interests whose focus is continuing to stretch the boundaries of virtuosic classical music by composing for and embracing technologies which she feels are underutilized.
Shannon also shares her parent’s passion for sustainable living and alternative energy and spends as much time as she can at the family’s off the grid organic vegetable farm. http://www.shannonleehayden.com

canid

Canid (Colin Jenkins) began in 2008 outside Washington, DC, moved to Bloomington, IN, in 2009, and soon (i.e. tomorrow) will be relocating to Philadelphia. Canid has toured Europe and the East Coast with fellow Bloomingtonian Drekka. He has performed at MuViMentS Festival 2011 in Itri, Italy, and Sonic Circuits Festival 2012 in Washington, DC. Canid exists along a continuum from ambiance to noise and is defined by fractal patterns of lo-fi pedal drones, wordless manipulated vocals, and fragments of semi-intelligible speech. Each improvised performance simultaneously searches for and attempts to establish a open-ended narrative arc as a means of continued spiritual revelation.

pas

“PAS Musique (PAS) is a group out to create musical collages through the form of abstract sound. Their name refers metaphorically to those who have been aborted by society, because their point of view doesn’t fit in the constraints of “normal” society. The term also refers the negative form in French, metaphorically negating everything that is established to start from a new beginning. The viewpoint fuels our creativity to create our own world of beauty. Since our inception the band has been interested in making music from the fringes of perception, creating soundscapes that aren’t defined by any particular conventions or viewpoints. The aesthetic underpinnings are defined by the notion that music can be whatever the ear perceives. It’s a conception fueled by the love of life and art. It’s a desire for honest artistic self-expression. The compositions themselves are more akin to soundscapes than “songs” in the traditional sense. There are no clearly defined melodies, no structural landmarks that give you any sense of traditional anchor. This is not music making with any sense of or desire for commercial viability, but sonic sculptures in the mode of pure art.”
