About the musicians:

JOHN WIESE is an artist and composer from Los Angeles, California.
His ongoing projects include LHD and Sissy Spacek, with plenty of
freelance work with many artists as diverse as Sunn O))), Wolf Eyes,
Merzbow, Dave Phillips, Smegma, Kevin Drumm, Cattle Decapitation
and C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core). He has toured extensively
throughout the world, covering Europe, Scandinavia and Australia
as a member of Sunn O))), the UK as part of the Free Noise tour
(a tentet including Evan Parker, C. Spencer Yeh, Yellow Swans, etc.),
the United States alongside Wolf Eyes and recently performed in the
52nd Venice Biennale with artist Nico Vascellari.

Caveman performance action/noise from western Massachusetts,
NOISE NOMADS is the solo project of Jeff Hartford, also of the band
Grey Skull. His recordings have appeared on Load, Gods of Tundra,
Bonescraper, Breaking World Records, and a recent LP on RRRecords.
Load Records describes him thusly: "Western Massachussets is a land
of shopping outlets and hemp-skinned hacky sacks. Jeff Hartford
breathes in and out amongst all this hub bub. What he does do is
give off an organic crunch. He's never content to just play to one
schtick as it were, instead, practicing everything from christmas
tree impersonation, to hand chime phasery, to all out 4-track abuse."

BENJAMIN NELSON has performed in various groups with styles ranging
from instrumental metal and power electronics to free folk and improv.
His solo work seeks to bridge the gap between academics and emotional
music, drawing inspiration from minimalism, electro-acoustic and post
industrial music. While spending the last five years studying
electronic music in Boston, Benjamin has performed solo throughout
the US and Europe, but this will be his first solo performance in
his hometown.

EMBOUCHURE (Nathan Ahlers and Ricardo Donodo) channels frustration,
isolation and dread through their minimalist/maximalist drone
compositions. Where most drones tend to revolve around healing/
meditative practices, Embouchure sets out to poison and scorn. This
is not easy listening. Using an arsenal of digital and analog
electronics, prepared acoustic instruments, granular synthesis and
feedback systems, Embouchure creates a mood of total desolation
and abandon.
