DONNA PARKER / VIC RAWLINGS
OREN AMBARCHI is a composer and multi-instrumentalist with longstanding interests in transcending conventional instrumental approaches. His work focuses mainly on the exploration of the guitar, “re-routing the instrument into a zone of alien abstraction where it’s no longer easily identifiable as itself. Instead, it’s a laboratory for extended sonic investigation”. (The Wire, UK).
JAKE MEGINSKY is an electronic musician, percussionist, and composer based in Northampton, Massachusetts. Though best known for his solo work (both under his own name and as Vapor Gourds), he has also been active in a number of collaborative projects, including Slaughterhouse Percussion with John Truscinski and F/I/P with guitarist Bill Nace. His newest solo release, Seven Psychotropic Sinewave Palindromes, was listed in “FACT Magazine’s top 25 albums of 2016 so far.”
BILL NACE is an artist and musician based in Western Massachusetts. He has collaborated with an extraordinary range of musicians, including Michael Morley, Mats Gustafsson, Joe McPhee, Chris Corsano, Jooklo Duo, Chris Cooper, John Truscinski, Thurston Moore, Jake Meginsky, Jessica Rylan, Paul Flaherty, Wally Shoup, and Kim Gordon, with whom he regularly plays as one half of the duo Body/Head. Their critically acclaimed LP “Coming Apart” was released on Matador last September.
