Yvette Janine Jackson, Los Angeles born, is a composer, sound designer, and researcher who creates narrative soundscape composition for concert performance, theatre, and installation. Her long-form works often draw from history and examine relevant social issues as exemplified in Vernaculus I and Vernaculus II, sonic expressions of the catastrophic Middle Passage of Africans to the Americas, performed by Mark Dresser’s Bass Ensemble and Anthony Davis’s Improvisation Ensemble, respectively. Her experience producing radio drama is manifest in her acousmatic compositions Invisible People (A Radio Opera), a sonic exploration of homophobia within African American communities, and A Thin Line (A New Radio Opera).

Astor is the moniker of Mark Harwood, Australian publisher, event curator and sound artist who is now residing in London, United Kingdom. Under this guise he deploys a wide variety of techniques including field recording, musique concrete, electronics and spatialisation. All of these forms are approached with a sense of bypassing the cliches imbedded within in order to coerce a sound world which is simultaneously contemporary, foreign, beautiful, unsettling and engaging.

Ashley Bellouin and Ben Bracken make music with both traditional and hand made instruments that exploit the natural overtones and sympathetic vibrations generated by highly redundant tuning systems. Minimal structures and simple harmonic relationships give rise to meditative washes of sound.
