About the artists:

Over the past ten years, IAN NAGOSKI has made slow, dense, heartfelt soundfields for electronics. For several years, he has also been an improvising and catharsis-oriented vocalist. His new piece involves layered recordings of voice, Arp synthesizer, Wild Wave (a vibrating metal plate instrument invented by Daniel Conrad) and bagpipes. In addition to his four solo recordings of electronic music, he has also contributed to performances and recordings by numerous musicians and has been in musicological research, including the recent compilation of early 20th century recordings Black Mirror: Reflections in Global Musics, 1918-1954 on the Dust-to-Digital label. His most recent solo electronic release, Kerflooey, is available on the Ehse label on LP or as a free download at Ehse Records.

JARROD FOWLER is a rhythmist via/vis a vis conceptual percussion. His work seeks to grasp how rhythm makes sense through context specific practice. He has collaborated with Bruce Andrews, JLIAT, Brandon LaBelle, John Mowitt, Liz Tonne and others. In 2008 Jarrod has shown at Instal, Johan Deumens and the Tate Modern. His CD ‘Percussion’ As Percussion will be released this November by PLE.
