BYRON WESTBROOK has been presenting experimental sound work internationally in contemporary music and art venues since 2008. His recorded releases on Umor Rex, Root Strata and Hands in the Dark take a sculptural approach to electronic composition shaped by visual art studies and a history of working with multi-channel sound installation. Recent projects have included a commission for the Walker Art Center, performances at MoMA PS1, Akousma Festival, Berlin Atonal and residencies with ISSUE Project Room, EMS Stockholm, Civitella Ranieri Foundation and Banff Centre for the Arts. A new cassette/digital release Voice Damage, is out March 2019 on Psychic Troubles Tapes. Westbrook is currently based in Los Angeles.

GUDINNI CORTINA is a media artist, based in México. Cortina uses different approaches to transform space such as live sound performances, photography and installation. ANNE-F JACQUES is a sound artist based in Montreal, Canada. She is interested in amplification, oblique interactions between materials and construction of various contraptions and idiosyncratic systems. Her particular focus is on low technology, trivial objects and unpolished sounds. She has presented several sound installations and live performances in South and North America, Europe and Japan. Anne-F is also involved with Crustacés Tapes, a postal sound distribution project. Together Cortina and Jacques use various idiosyncratic implements and contraptions to explore stillness, fractures and friction through sound. This will be the last show of their first tour as a duo.

SOUND OF THE MOUNTAIN is a Montreal-based duo featuring the hollowed-out sounds of Elizabeth Millar and Craig Pedersen on amplified clarinet and trumpet, Sound of the Mountain comes from a strong history of improvisation and extended performance techniques, offering their audience long-form deep listening experiences through the sculpting of vitalized breath.

ANIMAL HOSPITAL is often Kevin alone constructing music from scratch w/ an array of sounds containing enough parts to employ - at times - many musicians referencing many familiar aspects of rock and pop as well as more conceptual perceptions of what people consider music. As of 2011, Animal Hospital has explored new avenues for live performance in large ensemble formats and sound installation.

Non-Event’s programming is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and administered by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.
