KEITH ROWE is an English free improv guitarist and painter. One of the key figures in this history of electroacoustic improvisation and prepared guitar, Rowe was a founding member of the groundbreaking group AMM, though he left in 2004, as well as the large improvisational ensemble, M.I.M.E.O. He trained as a visual artist and Rowe’s paintings, which are in a style reminiscent of Pop Art, have been featured on many of his album covers.
RICK REED is an entirely self-taught composer/visual artist who has been working in the Austin music underground for the past 25 years. Using old battered electronic devices like sine wave generators, short wave radios and a vintage EMS analogue synthesizer, Reed has performed solo and with various electronic/noise groups including Frequency Curtain, Abrasion Ensemble, and FTC.
MICHAEL HALETA is a multidisciplinary artist based in Hamilton, New Jersey. A classically trained cellist turn electro acoustic composer, he is interested in individual sounds and bits rather than complete things. In addition to his solo work, he is also one half with his wife, Dawn Bendick, of the audio/visual duo, Backbreakerneckbrace. He also plays in the Baltimore band WZT Hearts.
