For over four decades John Duncan has operated at the cutting edge of performance, installation, radio broadcasting, experimental music and video. He was a member of Los Angeles Free Music Society in the '70s before departing from the United States in 1982 to take up residence in Tokyo, followed by Amsterdam in 1988, and Bologna since 2005. Duncan has amassed a host of collaborators over the years including Cosey Fanni Tutti & Chris Carter, Merzbow, Pan Sonic, Francisco Lopez, and Jim O'Rourke. His legacy in experimental music continues to have a lasting influence as he continues to hone, refine, and sharpen his focus.

Carl Michael von Hausswolff was born in 1956 in Linköping, Sweden. These days he lives and works in Stockholm. Since the late 1970s Hausswolff has worked as a composer using the audio recorder as his main instrument, and as a conceptual visual artist working with performance art, light and sound installations, and photography.

Scot Jenerik is a multidisciplinary artist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and sound engineer. He has performed, lectured, and distributed works extensively in the United States, Europe, and Japan for over 30 years. He founded 23five Incorporated, the first non-profit arts organization in the US dedicated specifically to the development and increased awareness of sound works in the public arena. He was the co-host of the No Other Radio Network on KPFA and is co-owner of Mobilization Records.

Schneider TM is the multidimensional music project of Dirk Dresselhaus which oscillates extensively between adventurous electronic pop-music and experimental, sometimes improvised freeform music, while occasionally bringing these and other opposing elements together. Dirk has been active in different musical fields since the 80s, currently operating a small studio in Berlin called ZONE where most of his recent projects were realized, as well as works with bands like Faust, Yo La Tengo, and To Rococo Rot. For this performance he will be joined by Chandra Shukla on sitar and electronics.
