Adam Hirsch is a composer, songwriter, and improviser based in Oakland, CA. He makes music with saxophones, computers, analog electronics, and his voice, among other things. Working in chamber music, free improvisation, and pop experiments, his music lives at the fringes of expanding timbral and emotional landscapes. He currently studies electronic music and recording media at Mills College.
Scott Cazan is a Los Angeles based composer, performer, creative coder, and sound artist working in fields such as experimental electronic music, sound installation, chamber music, and software art where he explores cybernetics, aesthetic computing, and emergent forms resulting from human interactions with technology. His work often involves the use of feedback networks where misunderstanding and chaotic elements act as a catalyst for emergent forms in art and music.
One of the most vital experimental musicians from Mexico is Carmina Escobar, who through her voice and technological tools has explored a wide range of contemporary music and improvisation. In this work, Escobar offers a series of interactions between her voice, body, and a public space in Connecticut in which there were some uncovered pianos in open space, full of rusty strings and leaves. The recordings were made with different types of microphones, the result is a piece heaping on beauty and also relevant acoustical challenges.
