Colla Parte
Colla Parte brings together three musicians with deep backgrounds in jazz, classical and contemporary art music to create a unique form of freely improvised chamber music. In alphabetical order: Daniel Barbiero (double bass); Perry Conticchio (reeds and flute); Rich O’Meara (vibes and percussion).

Amptext (Gary Rouzer) seeks to investigate the boundary between music/noise, sound/silence, and instrumental technique/gesture using electric bass, radio, cello, amplified objects, record player, and field recordings. In performance the music is presented as live collage and combines scored actions with improvised composition.

The unsettled dream music of TL0741 will be the leisure-time birthing chamber atmospheres and waltzes of choice when cockroaches and machines have inherited the Earth. Pat Gillis (b. 1965, USA) began performing as TL0741 in January 2005, presenting structured improvisations for analogue modular synthesizer and effects combined with pre-recorded material. The sounds of this dynamic alchemical multiverse arise from everywhere: nocturnal wildlife, incomprehensible voicemails, obscure antique pornos, treated instruments and decontextualized / processed location recordings. Drones, unstable automata and inharmonic gestures are harvested from the electrons accompanied by the smell of overheated analogue circuitry, providing an invisible but tangible companion for every listener.

Soft Pieces
Zach Mason (b. 1977) created the Soft Pieces project to join organic, improvisational performance with the versatility of modern tools, pairing spectacle with subtlety to – hopefully – create a memorable experience for each audience member.

Lost Civilizations
The Lost Civilizations experimental music project is a collaboration between Mike Sebastian (Tenor Sax, Saxello and Bass Clarinet) and T. A. Zook (BassCello and Misc. Instruments).
