• Ka Baird is a performer, composer and sound designer based in New York City. They are known for their live solo performances which include extended voice and microphone techniques combined with electronics and psychoacoustic interplay of flutes and other woodwinds. They create a present tense sound with a vigorous delivery that seeks extreme release through physical exertion and psychic extension.
• Bitches Set Traps push the boundaries of improvisation by exploring current events, feminism, misogyny, and performance taboos, in theatrical and comedic performances. Using instruments, voices, and common household items, Sarah Ruth Alexander, Elizabeth McNutt and Kourtney Newton, recycles and questions everyday tropes of American culture, from tampon commercials to heavy metal power ballads, Eminem to Supreme Court briefs, Joan Didion to Frank Sinatra.
• Henna Chou is a sound explorer with experiences living in Tucson, AZ; Overland Park, KS; Berkeley, CA; Ames, IA; Beijing, China; and Montpelier, VT. Previous participations include work with COTFG, Salvage Vanguard Theater, Paper Chairs Theater, BLiPSWiTCH, Collide Arts, The Blanton Museum of Art, The Contemporary Austin, New Music Co-Op, Peter Stopschinski, Stop Motion Orchestra, Go: Organic Orchestra, Phonography Austin, Golden Hornet, Heloise Gold and The Resonant Lung.
• Princess Haultaine III, from North Texas. Obsessive, chaotic noise as primary method for processing trauma, grief, and despair. Combat veteran turned vehement anti-imperialist. Do what you have to do to enjoy your life, read more.
• CNCPCN Sound designer, audiovisual producer and photographer. She studied Audiovisual Media at the Centro de Arte Audiovisual, in Guadalajara. Her sound exploration is through recordings of everyday objects and instruments, which when reproduced and manipulated with recorders and processed tapes, creates sound narratives, which rather than being inserted into a specific musical genre, approach the construction of a story that is invisible – however – imagined. She has played in VOLTA, Meditatio Sonus, Desbordamientos, UMBRAL, Aural, Center 4 New Music (C4NM San Francisco), MUTEK, NRMAL, No idea Festival, Laboratorios Sonoros UNAM, Rewire, Roter Salon, Cafe OTO, Beboerhuset, among others.
• Alma Laprida works with trumpet marine, field recordings, synthesizers, lyre and other non-conventional objects, exploring the territories among composition, improvisation, performance and installation. After living and working in Buenos Aires, she’s been based in Maryland, USA, since 2021. She played, performed and set installations in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Italy, Mexico and the United States. In Buenos Aires, she created the series of concerts Ciclo Hertz and a project for collaborations between visual and sound artists named Estrépito y contemplación. She was Curator-In-Chief at the Centro de Arte Sonoro, and Assistant Professor at the BA in Electronic Arts of the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero.
• Christian Mirande is a musician from Philadelphia, formerly residing in Oklahoma. He has utilized magnetic tape, various audio synthesis methods, and instruments from the fretless bass to the iphone voice memo. His work often deals with themes such as memory, loss, nature and faith; with work released on labels like Hanson, Anathema Archive, No Rent, Ascetic House and Glistening Examples . He has been a member of the groups Open Corner and The Flea Circus.
• Monte Espina is the electroacoustic free improvisation duo of Ernesto Montiel and Miguel Espinel, both Venezuelan-born and North Texas-based. They explore the possibilities of sinuous sonic environments amid amplified sounds and signal processing, and have collaborated with a long list of local and regional artists, their recordings have been published by Marginal Frequency, Elevator Bath and Round Bale Recordings. A year-long/site-specific project in collaboration with Sarah Ruth, cuatro estaciones, has just been released by Full Spectrum Recordings.
• Warren Realrider is a Pawnee/Crow multidisciplinary sound artist based in Norman, Oklahoma, who usually performs under the moniker TickSuck. He utilizes elements of harsh noise, sound art, and indigenous music in improvisational response to location, context and space. His piece IIII Katapaatu presented at the Tulsa Noise Fest in 2019 is featured in the documentary ‘Love and Fury’ by Sterlin Harjo.
• Weasel Walter is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser best known for leading the seminal punk-jazz/no-wave/brutal-prog band The Flying Luttenbachers on 16 full-length releases from 1992 to present. Seamlessly uniting the intensity and abstraction of improvised music with the nihilist aesthetics of extreme rock forms, Walter is committed to violent momentum, idiomatic unpredictability and rapid articulation. Walter appears on more than 215 commercially released recordings and tours internationally as the guitar player of Lydia Lunch Retrovirus since 2012.
• Andrew Weathers is a composer and improviser originally from Chapel Hill, NC and currently based in Littlefield, TX. His work engages with notions of place, tradition, repetition, and spirit, splitting the difference between folk music and Land Art. Weathers studied composition at UNC-Greensboro and electronic music at Mills College in Oakland, CA. In addition to his busy performing schedule, Weathers operates the Full Spectrum and Other Minds record labels, curates the Longitudes music series at CO-OPt Research + Projects in Lubbock, TX and works as a freelance mixing and mastering engineer.
